John McEnroe: In The Realm Of Perfection

Graceful, irascible and unique: in 1984, John McEnroe was unassailable, the world’s top-ranked player as he approached the French Open.

This documentary brilliantly adapts uncovered 16mm footage of McEnroe’s incredible skill (and unholy temper) from the event, offering deeper insights into how he drove himself to be one of the all-time great sportsmen.

Narrated by Mathieu Almaric, this is a unique sports documentary that gets under your skin and makes you know the man, not just the athlete.

★★★★ “McEnroe makes a fascinating focal point.” - Mike McCahill, The Guardian
