Will Smith’s new movie KING RICHARD tackles topics such as family, parenthood and love

Last week, HolaHollywood took part in a press conference gathering all of KING RICHARD protagonists.

Will Smith, Saniyya Sidney, Demi Singleton, Serana and Venus Williams among others shared with us the huge responsitibility that was the making of such an epic biopic.

Sky is the limit – Serena Williams

If there is one lesson to learn from this movie is that the only thing that will ever stop you is yourself.

Saniyya Sidney, Demi Singleton were conscious to hold a huge responsibility toward Serena and Venus, but most of all towards young black girls.

KING RICHARD is not just about tennis… it talks about respect, dreams, loyalty, work… family.

Will Smith reflects on parenthood

Will Smith is Richard Williams, the founder of Serena and Venus’ success. For the actor, playing the father of two of the most renowned tennis players of the world was an honor. Williams helped the sisters to grow as women, while building what we could now call The Williams Sisters.

With this movie, Smith could reflet on another style of parenting. Not better, not worst but different. The way Richard Williams educates his daughters is another approach to fatherhood. Maybe more conventional, but with the same values ; hard work and family being the core of everything.
