The electrifying 1973 tennis match between World number one Billie King and ex-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs was billed as The Battle of the Sexes and became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time. The match caught the zeitgeist and sparked a global conversation on gender equality, spurring on the feminist movement. Trapped in the media glare, King and Riggs were on opposite sides of the binary argument, but off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. Together Billie and Bobby served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis courts and animated the discussions between men and women in bedrooms and boardrooms around the world.
“A film based on a true story should have three things – strong characters, fierce conflict and a fresh angle. Battle of the Sexes serves up all of them.” – New York Daily News
