Borg VS McEnroe
‘(LaBeouf) is terrific in a role that shrewdly plays off his controversial off-screen persona.’ - Variety
The Wimbledon tennis championships of 1980 ended with one of the greatest sporting encounters ever seen: Sweden’s ice-cool four-time Men’s Singles Champion Björn Borg, versus snotty New York upstart John McEnroe (a never-better Shia LaBeouf). As the clock ticks down to their utterly thrilling showdown, surprising vulnerabilities emerge.
Whether you know the outcome or not, or whether you even care about tennis, it doesn’t matter – Borg vs McEnroe is fascinating drama and an exhilarating battle of personalities.
