In this episode of 92Y Talks, Anya Taylor-Joy, Marielle Heller, Moses Ingram, and Scott Frank discuss their new Netflix limited series The Queen’s Gambit with Jodie Foster. Based on the Walter Trevis novel about a Cold War-era chess prodigy, it’s a coming-of-age story like no other—a complex portrait that follows a young girl from a Kentucky orphanage into the upper echelons of competitive chess as she discovers her preternatural talent for the game—along with the demons that haunt her pursuit of a new life. The conversation was streamed live as part of the 92nd Street Y’s online talks series on November 1, 2020.
