From the acclaimed directors of Little Miss Sunshine comes this playful true story of gender wars on the tennis court. In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women’s movement, the 1973 tennis match between women’s world champion Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-men’s champion Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was billed as the ‘Battle of the Sexes’. This became one of the most watched sports events of all time, but as the tennis rivalry intensified, each was fighting more personal and complex battles off court.
