    King Richard (HBO Max):

    A look at how tennis superstars Venus and Serena Williams became who they are after the coaching from their father Richard Williams.

    Will Smith is Will Smith for the first part of the movie, then I think he really embraced the persona of Richard. The movie isn’t Disney-fied, they show the dark side (and hypocrisy) of sports parents. Personally, I think that Richard DID recognize them as having talent, and DID want them to be the best, and made the moves to do it. However, a lot of selfishness there. Let’s just say it was mutually beneficial.

    Good movie, definitely recommended watching.

    Watched on HBO last night too. Was really well done. I would like to see an biopic of the girls more, but a good background on them and their journey.
