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.
