Battle Of The Sexes

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 (Stone) and former men’s number one and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Carell) became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time. As their rivalry intensified in the media glare, both King and Riggs fought complex battles in their private lives: while she championed equality, the fiercely private King struggled to come to terms with her sexuality; at the same time, Riggs wrestled with his gambling demons at the expense of his family. Together, they served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis court, sparking discussions that continue to reverberate today.
