King Richard

6:15pm - Monday, Jan 17, 2022

Armed with a clear vision and a brazen 78-page plan, Richard Williams (Will Smith - never better) is determined to write his daughters, Venus and Serena, into history. Training on Compton, California's neglected tennis courts--rain or shine--the girls are shaped by their father's unyielding commitment and their mother's balanced perspective and keen intuition, defying the seemingly insurmountable odds and prevailing expectations laid before them. Based on the true story that will inspire the world, "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.

"... a career-defining performance from Will Smith." (Chicago Reader)

"'King Richard' transcends sport biopic formulas with refreshingly nuanced storytelling -- and a towering performance from Will Smith in the title role." (Rotten Tomatoes)

"Featuring a towering performance from Will Smith in the title role, proving that a hero is not necessarily easy to root for." (US Weekly)

"The Williams sisters' saga is so improbably inspirational that watching their ascent, coupled with Smith's crackerjack performance, had me grinning the entire time. It's the most sheerly pleasurable movie I've seen so far this year." (Filmweek / NPR)

"The movie's brightest-burning idea, and it is sincerely moving, is that Richard, for his flaws, does what he does on behalf of the young Black women he's raising. This rings true in real life and in fiction." (Rolling Stone Magazine)
