ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. A tale of real-life rivalry on the tennis court kicked off the Toronto International Film Festival on Thursday (September 7) in a scaled-back line-up of movies that focus on tales of survival amid chaos. "Borg/McEnroe" stars Shia LaBeouf as fiery U.S. tennis star John McEnroe and Sverrir Gudnason as cool Swedish champion Björn Borg, whose epic matches in the 1980s set the world of tennis alight. LaBeouf, 31, in his first big movie since a string of arrests for drunken or disorderly behavior in the past three years, acknowledged that he shared some of McEnroe's hot-headed personality. "Borg/McEnroe" is not the only film getting a Toronto showcase whose drama plays out on the tennis court. Emma Stone, in her first movie since winning an Oscar for musical "La La Land" in February, plays Billie Jean King as she fought 1970s sexism and faced off against Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) in "Battle of the Sexes." The Toronto festival has become one of the most important stops for filmmakers looking to showcase their work in the long Hollywood awards season that culminates with the Oscars, on March 4 next year. The slate this year has been trimmed to 260 from around 300 in 2016.
