MCENROE

Sports

“McEnroe” is an intimate portrait of one of the most explosive and compelling sporting icons of all time. Number One in the world in four consecutive years, John’s epic battles with Bjorn Borg helped define the golden era of tennis, yet huge controversy on and off the court betrayed an inner conflict. Set over one New York night, John journeys into memory to explore why a need for connection both drove him and nearly broke him.


“McEnroe” features completely unseen archive from some of the biggest matches in tennis history – including the US Open and Wimbledon – as well as home video footage from John himself. Contributions from John’s children and his wife Patty Smyth provide a level of intimacy that takes the film beyond a sports biopic and into the realms of something deeply confessional.


Compassionate and heartfelt, featuring icons such as Billie Jean King, Bjorn Borg and Keith Richards, “McEnroe” is the definitive portrait of a force of nature powered by the beating heart of New York.
