"Tashi Duncan": unapologetic powerhouse
Tashi is no ordinary coach. She's a former tennis sensation who knows how to play the game, both on the court and in love. Married to "Art" (Mike Faist, 32), a champ on a downward spiral, "Tashi"s plotting a comeback that's as bold as her backhand. But hold onto your hats, because Art's comeback trail leads straight to "Patrick" (Josh O'Connor, 33), a blast from the past who's not just any opponent – he's "Tashi"s ex-flame!
It's a recipe for drama that's juicier than a Wimbledon strawberry! As the trio navigates the minefield of their intertwined histories, the stakes are higher than ever. With hearts and trophies on the line, "Tashi"s got to decide – what's the price of victory?
Screenplay and soundtrack score big
Penned by the talented Justin Kuritzkes and brought to life by a star-studded production team including Amy Pascal, Guadagnino, Zendaya herself, and Rachel O'Connor, 'Challengers' is set to be a cinematic grand slam. And with a score by the legendary Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross, your ears are in for a treat too!
