Fort Lauderdale, FL, September 05, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- To gear up for their 9th Anniversary season in Fort Lauderdale (taking place October 6th-15th), the OUTshine Film Festival is screening their third and final GLOW film on Sunday, September 14th.
The film, starring Emma Stone as world-champion tennis player Billie Jean King and Steve Carell as the ostentatious ex-champ Bobby Riggs, takes place in 1973 during the lead up to the most wanted televised sports event of all time. Trapped in the media glare, King and Riggs are on opposite sides of a binary argument, but off court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. With her husband urging her to fight for equal pay, the private King was also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, while Riggs gambled his legacy and reputation in a bid to relive the glories of his past.
"Battle of the Sexes takes a timely look at the equality between men and women, not just on the tennis court, but in the world around it. Emma Stone plays Billie Jean King as she fights against the status quo while coming to terms with her own sexuality while Steve Carell plays Bobby Riggs, a tennis pro facing a gambling problem who is hell bent on recapturing his glory days with the spotlight shining on him again." - Ethan Anderton, SlashFilm
