Taliesin Cinema - Battle of the Sexes
Dir: Jonathan Dayton, Valerie Faris
USA 2017 2hrs 1min
Emma Stone, Steve Carell, Andrea Riseborough
In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women’s movement, the true story of the 1973 tennis match between women’s World number one, Billie Jean King and ex-men’s champion and serial hustler Bobby Riggs became one of the most watched televised sports events worldwide.
Not only championing for equality, King was also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality. Riggs wrestled with his gambling demons, at the expense of his family. Together, Billie and Bobby served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis court and continues to reverberate today.
“A seductively enjoyable, smart and well-acted film.” THE GUARDIAN
