King Richard is now streaming on HBO Max, and while the title might sound like a historic spin-off of The Crown, it’s far from it.
King Richard tells the real-life story of Venus and Serena Williams, beginning with their childhood and exploring their professional journey. But instead of focusing solely on the up-and-coming athletes, the movie centers around their father, Richard, who works tirelessly to convince the tennis industry to take a chance on his daughters. The titular role is played by Will Smith, and his performance already landed him a well-deserved Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama. (Plus, an Oscar might be next.)
