In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women's movement, the 1973 match between women's tennis champion Billie Jean King and former men's champion Bobby Riggs became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time. As their rivalry kicked into high gear, off-court they were fighting more personal battles. Together, Billie and Bobby provided a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis court, sparking discussions in bedrooms and boardrooms that continue to this day.  This comic drama stars Emma Stone and Steve Carell.
