"We're More Than A Team; We're A Family."
The THR has watched King Richard, an autobiographical movie about the tennis players Williams's sisters at a young age when they were starting out their careers.
Starring Will Smith, Jon Bernthal, Aunjanue Ellis, Saniyya Sidney, Demi Singleton, Tony Goldwyn, Dylan Mcdermott, Liev Schreiber, directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green.
The movie touches powerfully and with empathy on the struggle, but also the humbleness of a father who fights for their daughters in order to have a chance for their Tennis careers to evolve.
After many "No" which in any career is usual to get doors shut, they eventually have their shot to play in minor tournaments for young people and then get scouted and trained by the best. However, through this, as the story is focused mainly on the career of Venus Williams, there is also the chance to see what Serena's career looked like at the same time, and as a sneak peeks at hers we get to know her steps in early stages of a wonderful and inspirational tennis career she has experienced and still does in the professional world of Tennis.
The movie has given the chance to Will Smith's performance achieve many award nominations and an Academy Award win for Best Actor in a motion picture lately at the 2022 Oscars.
Certainly, the story inspires young athletes and many other professionals to use determination as a "weapon" to become the best version of themselves for any performances required.
Congratulations to the cast and crew for this achievement,
Hidden Fire stars 9/10
