BATTLE OF THE SEXES (PG)
Based on the incredible true story, the 1973 tennis match between women's World #1, Billie Jean King (Emma Stone), and ex-men's-champ and serial hustler, Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell), was billed as the "BATTLE OF THE SEXES" and became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time, reaching 90 million viewers around the world. As the rivalry between King and Riggs kicked into high gear, off-court each were fighting more personal and complex battles.
