Netflix has released the trailer for its upcoming miniseries, Queen’s throne. Anya Taylor-Joy is a chess master, clearing the line between “genius and insanity” in our first substantial form of the series, which begins on October 23, exclusively on Netflix. “Creativity and psychosis often go hand-in-hand,” announced a voice in the trailer. “Or, for that matter, genius and madness.”
Netflix limited series drama, based on the novel by Walter Tavis Queen’s throne Is a coming-of-age story that explores the true cost of talent. Abandoned and assigned to a Kentucky orphanage in the late 1950s, Beth Harmon (Anya taylor-joey) Reveals an astonishing talent for chess while developing an addiction to a state-provided tranquilizer as a sedative for children. Haunted by her personal demons and fueled by a cocktail of narcotics and obsessions, Beth transforms into an impressively skilled and glamorous outcast, while determined to conquer traditional boundaries set in the male-dominated world of competitive dominance goes.
The trailer of this Netflix miniseries is stylish and dark. From the beginning, the Beth Harmon character of Anya Taylor-Joy is being trained to be alone for the rest of her mother’s life. From there, it’s a series of flashes for various points in Beth’s life (ages 8 to 22), from being in an orphanage, to conquering the world of chess in the 1940s, to being trapped in the world of drugs and alcohol . The footage also appears to correspond directly to Walter Tavis’s source material.
Queen’s throne Includes 5 episodes, which will all premiere on October 23, allowing for a binge-watching experience. The show was officially announced by Netflix in March of 2019 and produced after its arrival in August, following which Anya Taylor-Joy signed on to star. Most of the miniseries were shot in Ontario, Canada, but there are some scenes that were completed in Berlin, Germany.
Walter Tavis’s novel of the same name appeared in 1983, a year before which he had lung cancer. The book covers topics of feminism, chess, drug addiction and alcoholism. The epigraph of the novel (short quote at the beginning of the book) is the poem by William Butler Yeats, “The Long-Legged Fly”, which echoes one of the book’s other major themes: the inner workings of talent in a woman. Tavis discussed the book in a 1983 interview and announced that he intended to write a sequel. However, this did not happen, as he died in 1984 at the age of 56.
