“Borg vs McEnroe”, directed by Janus Metz Pedersen

Movie, 2018

Tennis fans will probably enjoy; non-tennis probably won’t enjoy this film. The degree to which one enjoys (or doesn’t enjoy) tennis will probably dictate how much enjoyment can be taken here. Borg and McEnroe may or may not be the fascinating characters they’re relentlessly flashbacked to be here, and the 1980 Wimbledon mens’ final was surely a classic, though the whole formula is steeped in a very specific world and time. All said, the story comes through and is well done. Some good set pieces and pacing. If you like tennis, or the early 1980s, give it a go.
