Perhaps we should have expected the wildly enthusiastic critical accolades that have greeted Challengers. Its director, Oscar-nominee Luca Guadagnino, has given us such great films as Call Me By Your Name, A Bigger Splash, and I Am Love. Starring Zendaya, Josh O’Connor, and Mike Faist, Challengers puts the "love" back in tennis scoring–and/or at least the eroticism–in its steamy tale of a long on-court rivalry that turns into off-court rivalry and attraction. “Operating at the peak of his powers, Luca Guadagnino has the time of his life…It is horny, it is hungry, it is phenomenally exciting filmmaking”–Empire. “Anchored by three arresting performances and playfully experimental direction, Challengers is fresh, exhilarating, and energetic”–Entertainment Weekly.
