“You cannot be serious!” Shia LaBeouf and Sverrir Gudnason star as iconic tennis players John McEnroe and Bjorn Borg in award-winning Danish director Janus Metz’s vastly enjoyable sports biopic, telling the story of their epic rivalry, famously a study in contrasts, against the high drama of their legendary duel in the 1980s Wimbledon tournament. It’s both brilliantly cast and performed – with LaBoeuf perfectly mirroring John McEnroe’s mutinous rage, offset by Sverrir Gudnason’s glacial, lofty Borg, and featuring Stellan Skarsgård as Borg’s trainer Lennart Bergelin – and immensely nostalgic.
