Will Smith In The Inspiring Role Of Richard Williams

At a very young age, Richard Williams of Compton, California trained his 2 young daughters in tennis. Little did he know that they would be the phenoms of the sport they are today. Or maybe he did know.

This is how the film’s official description reads –

“Based on the true story that will inspire the world, King Richard follows the journey of Richard Williams, an undeterred father instrumental in raising two of the most extraordinarily gifted athletes of all time, who will end up changing the sport of tennis forever.

Driven by a clear vision of their future and using unconventional methods, Richard has a plan that will take Venus and Serena Williams from the streets of Compton, California to the global stage as legendary icons.

King Richard is a profoundly moving film that shows the power of family, perseverance and unwavering belief as a means to achieve the impossible and impact the world.”

Richard Williams was confident that he had not one, but two Michael Jordan’s on his hands. Knowing and believing in the talents of his little girls, you hear Smith as Richard in the trailer proclaim –

“I wrote me a 78-page plan for their career…before they was even born.”

Great athletes are formed when Richard Williams dedicates himself to his children. Serena and Venus would not be who they are today, without the foundation instilled in them by their father.
