Luca Guadagnino and Zendaya unite for an unpredictable tennis love triangle and a clever, sexy clash of wills.

Tennis prodigy-turned-coach Tashi Duncan stays in the game through her pupil and husband Patrick but grows frustrated when his championship turns into a losing streak. The reappearance of Art, his ex-best friend and her ex-lover, reignites the passions of all involved, but none of them (least of all her) is satisfied with anything less than dominance in every field, leading to some monumental struggles.

Well-established as an auteur with a vibrant and adventurous vision, Guadagnino (Call Me by Your Name) conquers another genre with feted writer Justin Kuritzkes (married to Past Lives filmmaker Celine Song), interweaving a kinetic sports thriller and a nuanced relationship drama into one relentlessly exciting package. All three leads physically and dramatically excel as tennis titans and flawed, ruthless power players.
