Borg Vs. McEnroe

Friday, April 13 - Thursday, April 26, 2018

The legendary rivalry between tennis star Björn Borg (Sverrir Gudnason) of Sweden and brash American challenger John McEnroe (Shia LaBeouf) came to head at an epic Wimbledon face-off in 1980. In the hands of director Janus Metz (Cannes Critics Week winner for Armadillo), their story becomes not only an electrifying sports drama — nail-biting even when you know the eventual outcome — but a compelling psychological portrait of what it takes to be a champion. With Stellan Skarsgård.
