Summary

Sports comedy drama based on a true story, starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell. It's 1973 and tennis player Billie Jean King is one of the queens of the women's game. So when retired pro and former Wimbledon champion Bobby Riggs claims that, even at his age, he could beat any of the women on the circuit, King feels obliged to defend the honour of her sex - as well as her claim for equal pay - by taking him up on his offer.
