Borg vs McEnroe

Dir. Janus Metz. Sweden, 2017. 1h 48m. English/Swedish/subs. Starring Sverrir Gudnason, Shia LaBeouf, Stellan Skarsgård, Tuva Novotny, David Bamber, Robert Emms, Jane Perry.

A stylish sports biopic about the tennis rivalry between the icy Björn Borg and the volatile John McEnroe. A riveting drama that culminates in their legendary Wimbledon Men’s Final in 1980 — regarded as one of the greatest matches of all time.

'A sports film with an arthouse sensibility. It benefits greatly from its chosen subject matter - two of the most remarkable characters in sporting history’ Jonathan Pile, Empire Magazine

'Playing tennis may not seem the best use of Shia LaBeouf's talents, but the star is terrific in a role that shrewdly plays off his controversial off-screen persona.’ Peter Debruge, Variety
