The 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs became the most watched televised sports event of all time. Trapped in the media glare, King and Riggs were on opposites sides of a binary argument, but off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. A titanic struggle between a woman battling for equality and her identity in the male-dominated world of sports, and man battling his inner demons and addictions – this pivotal moment in athletics history comes to life, in a heartwarming and inspirational feel good movie.
