How are champions made? Well, if you ask Richard Williams, he had a plan for that. Will Smith channels Williams as the film details, warts and all, how Richard was driven to get his girls championships. And by girls I mean womens' tennis champions Venus and Serena Williams, before they were even born. These ladies didn't have an easy route to getting to play professional tennis — their father was the driving force who saw their abilities and wouldn't let life in Compton or anyone else tell him no. Credit is due to Aunjanue Ellis who plays Richard's wife and partner and who supported the family and girls in their endeavors. A fine film for the whole family.
