The story of Venus and Serena Williams is one that I am familiar with. I have been a fan of tennis for a long time, and you must know the story of The Williams Sister’s. I also have known the story about their father teaching them. The film King Richard is about that story of their father teaching his girls how to play tennis.
The film I must say is one the best films that I have seen this year. Being that I am a fan of tennis there was nothing new for me to learn. I have watch countless documentaries about the sisters, and I replay their matches daily, that I feel like I came into the film with an upper hand. I must say that Will Smith is great as Richard Williams, I was able to see the man and not be confused by the actor trying to play the man.
This is a family film that aims to show that the man they all love is not a perfect man. He has a past just like everyone else, and that family is all that matters. This is a perfect film to sit around with your family and watch whenever you get the chance.
I have personally watched this film three times and it just keeps getting better. This is a story that everybody can get into and learn something about how one man came up with a plan to change a sport that is not willing to be change, and we are seeing the affects now.
I give this film 8 out of 10 stars.
