2017.09.22 - Battle of the Sexes & Transparent

Congrats to Directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (Alumni ‘03 -’13) for the release of “Battle of the Sexes”, here’s snippet of The New York Times review:  “Ms. Faris and Mr. Dayton handle the many moving parts in Simon Beaufoy’s busy script smoothly as they toggle between intimate moments and public events, and set Billie Jean’s bedroom sighs off against Bobby’s heat-seeking braggadocio.” Go watch for yourself!
