Searching For Atticus
King Richard
Show Notes

Will Smith turns in a sensitive and nuanced performance as the ambitious and complicated Richard Williams - father to not one, but two of the greatest players in the history of women's tennis. 
The movie follows the remarkable rise of Venus and Serena Williams from the gang-infested hard courts of Compton, California to Venus's debut on the pro tour. But the focus is on Richard  and the challenges he both overcomes and creates with his 78-page plan for his girls' success. 
Rich, Kofi & Blake discuss the ambitions we envision for our kids and whether audiences will see this movie as a source of inspiration, a cautionary tale - or perhaps, a bit of both.
