What does it take to raise two of the greatest athletes of all time? Venus and Serena’s incredible true story gets the inspiring big screen treatment it deserves with King Richard, directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green. Richard Williams (Will Smith) has big dreams for his two daughters, devising a 78-page plan for their tennis world domination before they are even born. From their humble home base in Compton, Venus (Saniyya Sidney) and Serena (Demi Singleton) train day and night to show the world they have what it takes.
Why You Should See This Film
Will Smith has been showered with praise for his Oscar-nominated role as Richard Williams, serving up an intensity that’s had critics calling it one of his best-ever performances. Equally impressive, though, are Saniyya Sidney and Demi Singleton as the young Venus and Serena, who trained tirelessly for months prior to shooting to replicate the Williams sisters’ unique playing style. Not the cheesy biopic you might expect, King Richard will have you cheering in your seat.
