Will Smith (who also produces) stars as Richard Williams, an obsessed, fiercely protective father raising and training two of the greatest tennis players of all time. Director Reinaldo Marcus Green and screenwriter Zach Baylin give this true-life Cinderella story into a deeper commentary, bringing into focus the hard edge and challenges of the impoverished neighborhoods that makes the family’s rise all the more remarkable. The fantastic cast includes Saniyya Sidney, Demi Singleton and Aujanue Ellis Williams, as Serena, Venus and their mom Oracene. (U.S., 2021, 146m)

“Stirring and heartwarming … a hugely touching family opus … straight from the heart and gets you in the gut.” –Empire
