The true story of the 1973 tennis match between World number one
Billie Jean King and ex-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs.

In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women's movement,
the 1973 tennismatch between women's World #1 Billie Jean King (Emma Stone)
and ex-men's-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was billed as
the BATTLE OF THE SEXES and became one of the most watched televised sports
events of all time, reaching 90 million viewers around the world. As the
rivalry between King and Riggs kicked into high gear, off-court each was
fighting more personal and complex battles. The fiercely private King was not
only championing for equality, but also struggling to come to terms with her own
sexuality, as her friendship with Marilyn Barnett (Andrea Riseborough)
developed. And Riggs, one of the first self-made media-age celebrities, wrestled
with his gambling demons, at the expense of his family and wife Priscilla
(Elisabeth Shue). Together, Billie and Bobby served up a cultural spectacle that
resonated far beyond the tennis court, sparking discussions in bedrooms and
boardrooms that continue to reverberate today.

Critic Reviews:


“Slick and fun, "Battle of the Sexes” is an ace." -
Detroit News



“A light, funny, blissfully entertaining flick about heavy, sadly
still relevant themes.” - Empire Magazine



“The film may borrow the name from the much-hyped match, but Little
Miss Sunshine directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris know far more
interesting conflicts were playing out off the court.” -
