Battle of the Sexes
FRI. 9/22, PG-13 ★★★★✩
This dramedy about the iconic 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) comes up aces. Emma displays a complex charm as Billie Jean, who struggles with her sexuality while fighting for gender equality. And Steve shows the desperate pathos behind Bobby’s chauvinistic shtick.
