Battle of the Sexes
Thu 14 Dec
Emma Stone plays tennis legend Billie Jean King and Steve Carell is serial hustler Bobby Riggs in the incredible true story of the greatest tennis match ever played between a man and a woman.
When, in 1973, King accepted Riggs' challenge to a nationally televised match with a winner-takes-all prize of $100,000, she knew that win meant so much more than personal pride, for Riggs, a master self-promoter, had taken the stance that women made inferior tennis players and that he, even in his 50s, could beat out any of the top female players. The challenge sparked a national debate and become an important spark in the burgeoning feminist movement.
