Description

Limits are for the limited.

Summer, 1980. Blubs flash. The air: electric, buzzing. The world watches and waits. Stoic tennis great Björn Borg (Sverrir Gudnason) will compete for his fifth Wimbledon championship. His opponent: John McEnroe (Shia LaBeouf, Transformers), a terse, hot-blooded American four years his junior. Now more than ever, Borg feels the formidable pressure to live up to his own name, his iconic image. McEnroe, determined and passionate, must step out of Borg’s shadow and assert himself as “one of the greats.” The interviews. The candor. The intensity. All lived on the world stage. All played out for the press. Only three days left to the spectacle. In these three days, they made history and captivated the world. – Michael Quintana
