Will Smith turns in the performance of his life in this biopic of Serena and Venus’ father. The script by first-timer Zach Baylin may suffer from having to cram a lot of years into two hours, but the cast makes up for it with some stellar work. Along with Smith, Aunjanue Ellis shines as the girl’s mom alongside Saniyya Sidney as Venus. It feels a little sanitized and Disney-fied in parts, but there’s no denying the fascinating story of perhaps the most famous sisters in the world.

4/5 stars
