“Edward Zwick is a diverse director, to say the least. He came to major Hollywood fame in 1989 with the Civil War drama Glory, and has made several other impressive historical dramatic epics since, including The Last Samurai, Legends of the Fall, and Defiance. He examined modern day warfare with Courage Under Fire and The Siege. His newest film, Pawn Sacrifice, is a biography of the famed chess champion Bobby Fischer (Tobey Maguire), and tells the story of his life from childhood through his famous televised match with Boris Spassky (Liev Schreiber) in 1972.
