Director Andrew Bujalski transports viewers back to year 1980 with this comedy set at a provincial hotel that's simultaneously hosting a chess programmer's competition and a New Age therapy convention for couples. Shot on a vintage Sony video camera, Computer Chess explores the awkward chemistry that comes into play as these two disparate groups struggle to find a common ground.
