Borg Mcenroe
Swedish star Stellan Skarsgård returns to the big screen? You cannot be serious! Oh, but we are. This gripping drama dramatizes the titanic clash between two of tennis’s biggest stars of recent decades – over-excitable American John McEnroe (Shia LaBeouf) and brooding, taciturn Swede, Bjorn Borg (Sverrir Gudnason) With Skarsgård as Lennart Bergelin, Borg’s coach, director Janus Metz (True Detective, Armadillo) has created a nail-biting and not unemotional account of the deep rivalry between the two men grappling for their lives and sanity in the fast, frantic world of 1980s tennis.
