'Wimbledon' on HBO Saturday Nights


STARRING: Kirsten Dunst, Paul Bettany


The fabled grass courts of the All England Lawn Tennis Club and the most prestigious racquet sport championship in the world are the stage for this engaging romantic drama. Peter Colt (Bettany, Firewall) is a 31-year old tennis has-been. The spotlight of fame has always eluded him, and he’s now #119 in the rankings. He’s going to lay down his racket for good, but not before one last swing at Wimbledon. Also joining the tournament is up-and-coming American tennis star Lizzie Bradbury (Dunst). The two meet when Peter is accidentally given the key to Lizzie’s hotel room, and he walks in on her having a shower.

A whirlwind romance begins between the two of them. As the matches go on, Peter finds that being in love is making him perform better than he or anyone else ever expected. In the highly competitive world of tennis, is there space and time for the pursuit of being Number One, and for true love? Movie critic James Berardinelli calls Wimbledon “a crowd-pleaser… the film has heart and spirit, and it does a lot of things well.” The easy chemistry and warmth between Dunst and Bettany create a believable and likable couple… you’ll be rooting for them all throughout.
