Battle of the Sexes (12a)

Directors Valerie Faris,Jonathan Dayton. Drama/Comedy


The 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs became the most watched televised sports event of all time. Trapped in the media glare, King and Riggs 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.

Starring Emma Stone, Steve Carell, Bill Pullman, Elisabeth Shue


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Unfortunately a small audience for our season finale but they felt that this was an well acted and enjoyable film. Hard to believe that the events it portrays only took place 40 +years ago - different times!
