"King Richard": Between the story of Williams and her father with Will Smith

Will Smith plays Richard Williams, father and trainer of Venus and Serena Williams in the drama “King Richard: A Winning Family”.

King Richard“It’s the movie that Warner Bros. opens in theaters and HBO Max this Friday. Will Smith had to depict, in a sensitive and moving way, a father who directs all of his pain into his love for his family.

Smith, 53, explained what it meant for him to create this character:

“Richard Williams is a hard man to love. But he’s a hard man to love because he loves so much. He was treated so brutally, disrespected and ignored. Family was converted in his oasis, “Smith said.

What is “King Richard” about?

“King Richard”, directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green, is an intimate take on tennis giants Williams and a nuanced portrayal of their father-coach, often portrayed as a self-promoting megalomania.

It is an authoritative view of the Williams family; Isha Price, one of the three half-sisters of Venus and Serena, is a producer. He presents her as a close-knit family whose accomplishments, from Compton to Center Court, have come from her Determination and unity.

Aunjanue Ellis plays Oracene Price, the mother. Price and Williams divorced in 2002. “King Richard” may largely be about Richard, but Ellis’ achievement was also highlighted by honoring the lesser-known but no less formative mother of Serena and Venus.

“She is one of a long line of black women I know personally who carry the weight of the world on their shoulders with or without a smile,” said Ellis. “Mothers like her generally cannot classify what they do in their children’s lives. They are their children’s coaches, but at the same time they have to cook and clean, they have to comb their hair, they have to sew tennis suits,” she says. It was a lot for her for this family. “

All of these characters will turn the film into a story centered around a father who raised two of the most extraordinary athletes of all time.
