‘Battle of the Sexes’ tells the true story of the 1973 tennis match between World number one Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell), which became the most watched televised sports event of all time. Billie and Bobby were on opposites sides of a binary argument, but off-court each were fighting more personal and complex battles. Together, they served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis court, sparking discussions in bedrooms and boardrooms that continue to reverberate today.
