King Richard is the extraordinary true story of how Richard Williams
(played by Will Smith) turned, through dedication and forward planning from
an early age, his two daughters Serena (Demi Singleton) and Venus (Saniyya
Sidney) into two of the greatest tennis players the world has ever known.
Smith is fantastic in the lead role as are Singleton and Sidney, Sidney in

on her upbringing whilst her sister Serena tends to hang about in the
With Venus and Serena acting as executive producers on the film King
Richard was never going to be anything other than a glowing testimony to
their father’s devotion and drive and that’s pretty much the way that it
plays out. If you’re a sports fan there’s a lot to enjoy and even if you’re
not it’s hard not to be taken in by Will Smith’s charismatic performance
and a terrific story that will amaze as much as it will entertain.
