It wasn't what I was expecting but I was pleasantly surprised. Lots of Oscar worthy performances, especially by Emma Stone and Steve Carrell.
While telling an important story, and a relatable one in this current climate, Battle of the Sexes succeeds in delivering what was advertised but struggles to balance its two themes and story arcs they’re trying to show.
An extremely good-natured, upbeat recounting of the infamous Bobby Riggs-Billie Jean King “man vs. woman” match of 1973.
Served up with star turns from Emma Stone and Steve Carell, Battle Of The Sexes slams a crowdpleaser across the net.
Just about everything about this film is winning and gratifying.
