Battle of the Sexes

Battle of the Sexes ★★★½

It feels weird to describe this with “cute” and “fun,” given the plot and general historical context but that’s exactly what this movie is. 

Honestly, at the end of the day, this isn’t the greatest movie ever made but I’m really happy that they included Billie Jean’s girlfriend and her sexuality in general instead of sidelining it for a more sports-focused plot. Even though they did create false drama in the relationship that wasn’t there in real life it was still Nice™ to see that sweet Emma Stone sports lesbian representation.
