Battle of the Sexes

Courtesy YTIMG

What do you get when you put together Academy Award winner Emma Stone and Golden Globe winner Steve Carell? You have the ultimate Battle of the Sexes.

The film is based on the legendary tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs, where history finally changed and women in tennis were recognized for their worth fairly.

The performances of Emma Stone as Billie Jean King and Steve Carell as Bobby Riggs are brilliant. Emma is strong and vulnerable showing off her feminine desire and Bobby is a complaining hopeless real gambling husband who happens to be a tennis player.

It is Steve’s Little Miss Sunshine Directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris who also direct Battle of Sexes. Simon Beaufoy who has written Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours, Everest and more pens the story for Battle of Sexes.

This cool 70s drama is a must watch.
