It’s 1979, nearing the turn of the decade. The ‘80s promise the Los Angeles Lakers a run for the National Basketball Association (NBA) championship and the growing rivalry of Magic Johnson between Larry Bird. Big collars, moustaches, comb-overs and chest hair permeate the screen. But so too does sexism. Winning Time is yet another hyper-masculine sports dramedy.
