The inspirational biopic of Richard Williams (an excellent Will Smith) who, against all odds, decided to make his children, Venus and Serena, tennis stars. A hit at Telluride.
Armed with a clear vision and a brazen 78-page plan, Richard Williams is determined to write his daughters, Venus (Saniyya Sidney) and Serena (Demi Singleton), into history. Training on Compton, California’s abandoned tennis courts – rain or shine – the girls are shaped by their father’s unyielding commitment and their mother’s (Aunjanue Ellis) balanced perspective and keen intuition, defying the seemingly insurmountable odds and prevailing expectations laid before them. Superbly directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green (Monsters and Men), King Richard follows the uplifting journey of a family whose unwavering resolve and unconditional belief ultimately delivers two of the world’s greatest sports legends.
Indie director Reinaldo Marcus Green steps up his game big time in this engaging true-life drama about how Richard Williams steered his daughters to dominate the sport of tennis.
