Brooklyn Castle officially hits theatres October 19th! The film follows the lives of five kids at inner-city middle school I.S. 318.
These kids are a part of the school’s very accomplished chess team, but also struggle through extremely challenging situations in their personal lives.
Though the chess team is successful, having won more national championships than any other school in the nation, 70 percent of the students who attend I.S. 318 live with incomes that are below poverty level!
Brooklyn Castle follows their wins, losses, and their fight to have a chance at achieving their versions of the American Dream!
The trailer so candidly states:
“Imagine a school where the cool kids are the chess team… Welcome to I.S. 318”
