The 1973 tennis match between the first racket of the world, Billy Jean King (Emma Stone) and the ex-champion, 55-year-old multiple winner of the Grand Slam tournaments, Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell), was nicknamed the "battle of the sexes", and also became the most rated sports TV program of all time - 50 million Americans watched the contest. A tennis bout took place at a time when society was actively discussing the issue of equality between men and women. The views of King and Riggs on this issue were at different poles, with each of them struggling with their more personal problems. Supporting her husband in the struggle for equal pay for performances of athletes of both sexes, Billy Jean tried to realize her sexuality in parallel, while Bobby risked his reputation in an attempt to regain his former glory. Together, King and Riggs staged a grandiose sports performance, which caused a wide resonance far beyond the tennis courts.
"War of the Sexes" is an American sports comedy-drama film from the director duet Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris. The plot is based on a true story about the epoch-making duel between two stars of world tennis - Billy Jean King, who fought neglect to women's sports, and champion "retiree" Bobby Riggs, who publicly declared that even at age 55 he would defeat the best of tennis players.
