The Battle of the Sexes

Biography, Documentary, History 1h 23m 2013

An entertaining, fast-serving account of the famous ‘Battle of the Sexes’ match between tennis champion Billie Jean King and her chauvinist challenger, one-time Wimbledon winner Bobby Riggs.

It was a match made in heaven: she was the darling of American tennis, an outspoken activist against sexism in sport and society; he was the charismatic, fast talking, hustling chauvinist showman. Yet their unlikely ‘courtship’, in the midst of a social revolution, captured the imaginations of people around the world, empowered a generation, and changed sport forever.
