A generally enjoyable and well-acted film, whose story is as sadly relevant today as ever (imagine if it had been released a year earlier, during the Trump-Clinton election campaign...).
Stone and Carell are both excellent as usual, and the story juggles several themes, dealing with sexism and homophobia both in sport and in the wider world. It feels as if there's a darker, punchier version of this story, which leans more towards entertainment and feelgood uplift, but its heart is in the right place and it makes valid and important points.
The true story of women's tennis champion Billie Jean King's match against ageing sexist player Bobby Rigs, and how it affects their marriages off the court.
