Rating: 4/5 -- With an impressive, extensive cast list, Battle of the Sexes is a timely story of the fight for gender equality. Full Review
King is passionate about women's equality, but we never really get into her head about why it really matters to her, or what the stakes are. Full Review
It is an entertaining and illuminating film that shines a light on the emergence of the feminist movement and changes in attitude towards sexuality. Full Review

[E]njoyable and entertaining....BATTLE is directed with a sure hand by the skilled team of Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton, masters of well-made storytelling...
Los Angeles Times
The best angle of the film is the way it illuminates the difference between fighting for equality and battling to hold on to perceived superiority.
It is a pleasant biopic in which, as expected, the performances of Steve Carell and, above all, Emma Stone stand out. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review
Rating: C- -- As the Supreme Poohbah of Pastry, Mary Berry, would far more eloquently explain from beneath the tent during The Great British Bake Off: You can have all the right ingredients and still make a gross-tasting cake of shame and disappointment. Full Review
The Reader (Omaha, NE)
This sports docudrama recreates the legendary 1973 "Battle of the Sexes" tennis match between Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell). When the 55-year-old Riggs brags that he can beat any woman in the world on the tennis court, 29-year-old King, then the reigning champion, accepts his challenge. Their highly publicized match soon takes on a larger meaning as a milestone in the fight for gender equality. Directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris. Elisabeth Shue, Andrea Riseborough, Sarah Silverman, Alan Cumming, and Bill Pullman co-star.
