An Oscar winning movie so good, you'll feel like you've just been slapped in the face. Directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green, Will Smith won the Academy Award for Best Actor at the 2022 Oscars for his portrayal of Richard Williams, father and coach to tennis legends Venus and Serena Williams. Saniyya Sidney and Demi Singleton put in stellar performances as Venus and Serena.
Armed with a clear vision and a brazen 78-page plan, Richard Williams 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.
