WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?
A renowned champion (Sverrir Gudnason) struggles to keep his cool as he comes up against an explosive young player (Shia LaBeouf) in a tournament that promises to set the tennis world alight.
TELL ME MORE (DON'T WORRY, NO SPOILERS)
It’s the summer of 1980 and Björn Borg (Sverrir Gudnason) is the top tennis player in the world.
A powerful and rigorously disciplined player, there is only one obstacle in his pursuit of a record-breaking fifth Wimbledon championship: the highly talented but ferociously abrasive young American, John McEnroe (Shia LaBeouf).
With three days until the tournament, Borg trains religiously, aided by his coach Lennart (Stellan Skarsgård) and girlfriend Mariana (Tuva Novotny). But McEnroe's wrecking-ball persona continue to infiltrate Borg's normally unshakable temperament.
With each man the antithesis of the other, both players dig deep into their memories as the climactic tournament draws near.
Visceral and breathlessly tense, the match - regarded as one of the greatest of all time - would mark the pinnacle of a ‘Fire and Ice’ rivalry set the world of tennis alight.
