    • Excerpt: … disappointing slumps in crafting King’s story are wonderfully compensated with charged performances from everyone.

    • Excerpt: We watch [King’s] evolution from hero on the court to international icon breaking barriers off it. 1973 is when she becomes a legend. [And] on those terms Battle of the Sexes is a resounding success.

    • Excerpt: Marital mates and co-directors Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton (the film-making duo behind the wonderfully quirky and oddly poignant “Little Miss Sunshine”) with the infectiously offbeat and provocative Battle of the Sexes, delve into the eyebrow-raising, public and private goings-on of the famed exhibition match…served up with fine energetic performances from Steve Carell and last year’s Oscar-winning darling Emma Stone

    • Excerpt: It feels like a conversation, laced with purpose and passion, but so generously sprinkled with charm, heart, and humor you might wish it’d never end.
