Battle of the Sexes

This film is going to receive several nominations during award season.  FACTS. 

We all know the outcome of the “Battle of the Sexes” match, but they created a scene that caused the audience to cheer when she won. FACTS. 



Deciding to be a game changer takes a great deal of risk and pressure, but to change the game you don’t always have a road map. The woman who changed the face of women’s tennis had no road map. She had a determination to ensure that women were recognized and heard for their worth.  The tennis court was her pulpit, and she hasn’t speaking about these important causes long after she put down her tennis racket. 

Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris told the story in a way that made the audience feel as though they were apart of the story. Through the richness of the story, we again witnessed history and felt frustrated that some things still haven’t changed. We are still debating equal pay.  We are still fighting for equality in all forms.  Like Billy Jean, we hold our head high and do the work. 

Emma Stone, Steve Carell, and Sarah Silverman delivered award-worthy performances. The clapping at the end of the screening, lets us know that they told a story that is historical but unfortunately still relevant.  

Emma Stone will win an Oscar. FACTS.

From the desk of Dr .Metzger:

​”I’m done talking, let’s play”.

This film is a winner. Emma Stone will likely grab another best actress nomination for her gratifying performance of Billie Jean King. You don’t have to be a tennis fan or a feminist to feel the heart of this movie. It’s about the power of going against the grain and what amazing things can happen when we zig when everyone else is ​zagging.

I loved it. It tackled heavy issues such as women’s equal pay and LGBTQ rights without being overtly preachy. Billie Jean King is a heroine and now I want some blue tennis shoes.
