About the Film
Battle of the Sexes is based on the true story of the famous Bobby Riggs/Billie Jean King tennis challenge of 1973, in which the aging and sexist hustler challenged not only one of the game’s best female tennis players, but also its strongest feminist voice and is set at a time when sexism was very ugly.

“You’re so equal, get on the court and face me,” Riggs brayed. “Or get back in the kitchen!”

There are some faults on the facts of the story. But it aces the important things — the tennis and the politics and the people

The film is directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris and stars Academy Award winner, Emma Stone, as Billie Jean King and & Academy Award nominee winner, Steve Carell, as Bobby Riggs
