‘I wasn’t just playing for myself. This was for everybody.’

Tennis star and women’s rights activist Billie Jean King won a total of thirty- nine Grand Slam titles, but the biggest match of her career took place in 1973 against former men’s champion Bobby Riggs, a self-proclaimed male chauvinist pig who declared that, even at the age of fifty-five, he could beat any woman in the world. A rousing and hugely enjoyable documentary with a great soundtrack. EIFF
