Battle of the Sexes
The 1973 tennis match between King and Riggs became the most watched televised sports event of all time. Trapped in the media glare, the two players were on opposites sides of a binary argument, but off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. With her husband urging her to fight for equal pay, the private King was also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, while Riggs gambled his legacy and reputation in a bid to relive the glories of his past.
Directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (Little Miss Sunshine), with an ace supporting cast including Andrea Riseborough, Sarah Silverman and Alan Cumming, BATTLE OF THE SEXES is a rousing drama that has never been timelier.
