Summary, etc.: In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women's movement, the 1973 tennis match between women's world champion Billie Jean King and ex-men's-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time, reaching 90 million viewers around the world. As the rivalry between King and Riggs kicked into high gear, off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles.

"Frankly, it's surprising just how many facets of this story there are to explore, and 'Battle of the Sexes' does so in such a way that should appeal to both audiences old enough to remember and those curious to know more."--Variety
