About this event

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 abandoned 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, the film follows the journey of a family whose unwavering resolve and unconditional belief ultimately deliver two of the world’s greatest sports legends.

Please note:
The hard of hearing and audio description screening is on Tuesday 30 November at 15.45pm.
Smith is excellent, fully inhabiting the character in one of the only roles to date that has required him to fully shed his habitual gloss of Will Smith charm.
4 Stars Wendy Ide, Observer
A towering turn from Will Smith, his best since Ali and one of the year's great screen performances, defines nearly every frame of this film.
4 Stars Kevin Maher, Times
