In the presence of: Valerie Faris, Jonathan Dayton, Piet Bracke
"As the rivalry between King and Riggs kicked into high gear, off-court each was fighting more personal battles. The fiercely private King was not only championing for equality, but also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, as her friendship with Marilyn Barnett developed. And Riggs, one of the first self-made media-age celebrities, wrestled with his gambling demons." (Fox Searchlight)
