“It’s a complicated story to tell, and we wanted our story to be something that really …” said Serena. “We were proud of that,” agreed Venus.

The film follows the journey of Richard Williams, played by Will, while raising his daughters to be tennis icons. Based on the true childhood story of Serena and Venus Williams, the film explores Richard’s experience with fatherhood and his efforts to secure his daughters future in the sports world.

The sisters praised Will’s portrayal of their father before asking what he thought of his performance and the film after seeing the biopic.

“I wanted it to honor both of you and your family in a way that will forever resonate in your heart,” said the 53-year-old actor. “I did it to Muhammad Ali and I didn’t even want to do it, and Muhammad Ali asked me personally.”

He continued, “It is such a daunting task. What you represent in the world and what you have created. When you make a film, you take a snapshot that will forever hold a terrible picture of such beautiful subjects. “
