Battle of the Sexes and Glow Trailers Promise Feminism (And Retro Hair)

Submitted by on May 20, 2017 – 12:01 pmNo Comment

Two trailers dropped this week for projects about women fighting for equality in sports and entertainment… although in very different ways. And both are going to feature some of the most amazing feathered ‘dos and bowl cuts of the upcoming season.

In Battle of the Sexes, Emma Stone and Steve Carell play Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs in their infamous tennis match. It’s directed by Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton of Little Miss Sunshine fame.

If that doesn’t give you your fill of pastel clothing and huge side burns, check out GLOW, coming to Netflix in June.

Based on the short-lived wrestling league and TV series of the same name from the ’80s of the same name, the show stars Alison Brie as a down-on-her-luck LA actress who stumbles on pro wrestling, and sees it as a chance to do more empowering work. It was created by Jenji Kohan of Orange is the New Black.
