BORG VS. McENROE

BORG VS MCENROE tells the story of the epic rivalry between Swedish tennis legend Bjorn Borg (Stellan Skarsgard) and his greatest adversary,, the brash American John McEnroe (Shia Labeouf), which came to a head during the 1980 Wimbledon Championships.

In terms of temperament, they were opposites: one a paragon of cool containment, the other a volcano of visceral emotion. But they had something in common: they were the best. Darting between evocative flashbacks and an electrifying present tense, Borg Vs. McEnroe thrills us with feats of athletic mastery—and activates our empathy with insights into what it takes to win.

Rated R for language throughout, and some nudity. Running Time: 107 Minutes.
