Emma Stone and Steve Carell star in this sensationally entertaining and timely film documenting a famous ‘70s battle for gender equality; both on and off the tennis court. In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of feminism, the 1973 match between women’s world no. 1 Billie Jean King (Stone) and sexist ex-champ Bobby Riggs (Carell) was one of the most watched televised sports events of all time. Trapped in the media glare, off-court King and Riggs were each fighting more personal and complex battles – King, seeking equal pay while struggling to come to terms with her sexuality, and Riggs gambling his legacy and reputation in a bid to relive the glories of his past.
