It has a happy ending. It gets gradually more uplifting throughout with a crisis in 5-6 and telegraphs pretty much all its moves.

Its core narrative is the same as a sports movie overlaid with fantastic attention to period culture, fashion, furniture, architecture, etc. and near-perfect execution of the chess that impresses even the nerdiest chess experts while not getting in the way of non-chess people's enjoyment of the drama.
