One of the most explosive and compelling sports icons of all time, Number One in the world for four consecutive years, one part of an infamous rivalry that defined the golden era of tennis… McEnroe is the definitive portrait of one of the world’s best tennis players, John McEnroe. Featuring contributions from fellow icons, Billie Jean King, Bjorn Borg and Keith Richards, as well as his wife and children, this film goes beyond the typical sports biopic to become something deeply intimate and heartfelt. Set over one New York night, John journeys through memory to recall the triumphs and controversies that marked his career in this neon-infused, archive-blended fantasia..
