King Richard

King Richard ★★★★½

I know some folks have dismissed King Richard as hagiography, but I was honestly surprised by how annoying Richard Williams is in this movie. His stubbornness yields mostly great results, but sometimes he's just flat-out wrong and off-putting - which is a lot more interesting to watch. Will Smith does an excellent job in rendering a complex portrait of this man. Also, as far as I can tell, every actor in this film can play tennis really well - it's fun to see the matches filmed in unbroken wide shots!
