It feels like for this movie to be good, it would have to be complicated and fraught (the material is certainly there), but I don't want to watch anything complicated and fraught about the Williamses, I just want them to enjoy their success.

I found it moving, emotional, and good.

Also Serena and Venus (plus half sister Isha) executive produced.

Late to the party on this one. I'm a big fan of the Williams sisters, Serena in particular for her absolute domination of the sport, and know they were involved with this film so I'm glad it did well. The movie was well done, but I just couldn't shake the feeling that their dad was actually kind of awful, and made decisions about their lives and careers for years without consulting them or their mother. Sure, he loved them, and it turned out great, but he comes across like a well-intentioned tyrant.
