Challengers

Movie • Sport  

Report
Tashi, a tennis player-turned-coach, has taken her husband, Art, and transformed him from a mediocre player into a world-famous Grand Slam champion. To jolt him out of his recent losing streak, she makes him play a “Challenger” event — close to the lowest level of tournament on the pro tour — where he finds himself standing across the net from the once-promising, now burnt-out Patrick: his former best friend and Tashi’s former boyfriend.
This movie contains 19 potentially triggering events.

This is hard to define - there’s a lot of emotional/psychological abuse in this movie. While I don’t think there’s “forgiveness,” there’s not really a breaking away either.

It might be that Patrick is using, he has what look like track marks in the 2019 match, but it's never addressed or mentioned elsewhere

It happens when Tashi is playing tennis at Uni and Art is watching her. I would say it's shortly after [SPOILER] she and Patrick have a fight. She goes for a ball near the net and her knee dislocates, graphic sound and very fast close up of the knee. She falls and screams in pain, but the whole thing ends quickly.

Tashi spits in Patrick’s face maybe half an hour towards the end of the movie (?). Patrick and Tashi are in a car at night, Tashi asks Patrick to pull over and she gets out of the car. He calls something after her, and she turns around and goes back to him. Look away for about ten seconds when this happens.

I guess not but I’m not super clear how this would be defined. Patrick is clearly bisexual and Tashi cheats on Art with Patrick.

Patrick is seen scratching the inside of his arm at different points in the movie. At one point, it bleeds (quick and not too graphic). It’s unclear if this is self harm from nerves or something else, they don’t explain it.

The most explicit one is a kinda long sex/making out scene with Tashi and Patrick when he comes visit her at Uni, both still in underwear. The famous scene with the three of them is short and only goes as far as kissing and a bit of touching.

In the start when they see Tashi for the first time there's a lot of comments about her being really hot. Others girls are also mentioned, male protagonists talk about jerking off to a girl they knew when they were young.

[SPOILER] Not crying but I would say that Tashi looks down on Art when he underperforms and doesn't want to continue playing tennis. In one scene he asks her for confort and the audience laughed a bit in my screening, but I don't think it is played as ridicule.
