Richard Williams serves as a coach to his daughters Venus and Serena, who will soon become two of the most legendary tennis players in history.
I came hoping for to see Will Smith in a good movie for a change – and that's what I got! We know how Venus and Serena Williams' stories turned out but here is the person who planned their careers and motivated them.
Not being interested much in tennis I had never heard of their father, Richard, or his publicity grandstanding. Watching the story unfold was fascinating, even as we also gradually saw that Richard was anything but perfect. Yet, even with all his flaws, he still achieved his goal for his daughters.
It is too long but Will Smith delivered an outstanding performance reminding us that he really can act. Overall a movie that kept us captivated the whole time.
