King Richard

“King Richard” is the true story of Venus and Serena Williams and how their father Richard taught, pushed, guided and obsessed over making them tennis super stars. Will Smith gives what is probably his best performance to date. He makes Richard pushy, difficult, obsessive and at the same time loving and warm. Richard set extremely high standards for his daughters and against all odds they make it because of their skill, but also because of their father’s chutzpah. Even though we know the ultimate outcome the film is suspenseful and compelling. Smith’s greatness in this role shines because at times you love him and at other times you hate him because of the way he treats his daughters. This film is two hours long and I was not bored at all. A great story with a one-of-a-kind performance. Don’t miss it!
