BORG VS. MCENROE (M)
Was the 1980 Wimbledon men’s final between Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe the greatest game of tennis ever played? This dramatised take on that tumultuous five-setter believes the answer is certainly yes. Borg (portrayed with inscrutable focus by Sverrir Gudnason) was the epitome of the Scandinavian iceman. And there will never be another American hothead as instantly inflammable as McEnroe (Shia LaBeouf, a good physical and emotional match for the role, even if his tennis skills are suspect). Once the plot dispenses with the off-court soap operas, the big game itself is an epic stunner. Particularly the amazing fourth set, where Borg butchers no less than seven match points.
