“Served up with star turns from Emma Stone and Steve Carell, it slams a crowdpleaser across the net. ”~Screen International

Aroview: Entertainingly playful telling of the story behind the milestone 1973 tennis match in which the 29-year-old women's champ Billie Jean King was challenged by middle-aged former champion (and proud male chauvinist), Bobby Riggs. Still relevant in a 21st century where equal pay rights for women is still an issue, this is a treat for both sexes as both a tense sports movie and a fond nostalgia piece set in the heart of the feminist 1970s.
