Emma Stone, Steve Carell serve up 1973 match in ‘Battle of the Sexes’

Some may recall how windbag former tennis champion John McEnroe recently revived this line of thinking about male and female athletes when he made a remark downgrading Serena Williams.

Toronto Film Fest lineup will generate buzz, and debates
NEW YORK (AP) — Few institutions in cinema can match the teeming, overwhelming Toronto International Film Festival as a conversation-starting force. It simply has a lot of movies worth talking about.
