The true story of the 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs. King is a current champion and an outspoken feminist in her professional life, but her personal life is a struggle. Her marriage is failing and her closeted sexuality feels like a distraction. Outraged that the National Tennis League won't allow equal pay for men and women, she accepts a $100,000 winner-take-all match by Riggs, who is a decades removed from his last championship, facing dwindling finances. With Emma Stone and Steve Carell, from the directors of Little Miss Sunshine. Toronto 2017.
