Why to Watch - King Richard

I’ve never been into tennis but I watched this movie twice in two days. Will Smith completely transforms himself into the truly one of a kind Richard Williams, and possibly gives his best performance to date. Everyone’s acting in this is truly incredible (Jon Bernthal shout out) and about half way through I forgot I was even watching a movie.
