Richard Williams: No, brother, I got the next two Michael Jordans.
John Bernthal and Will Smith in the biopic King Richard (2021), which tells of the rise of Richard Williams’ tennis superstars daughters Venus and Serena. It was nominated for 6 Oscars, including a Best Actor win for Will Smith.
Very inspirational! So many people couldn’t see his vision but he kept at it and deserves all the rewards.
Was a King hit.
For sure. One of the better recent sporting biopics. A lot you can take from it. How much of the film were you aware of beforehand?
Some. Not a great interest. My father was the promoter for the Australian open in the late 70’s and 80’s. He was a manager for female tennis players, and has been awarded a gong here for his services to women’s and community sports… actually, as I write this, probably a lot. Thanks for making me further realise
That’s quite the background! Well done to your dad. Borg v McEnroe is really good too.
