A Documentary that finishes first...
10 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw this at Tribeca for its premiere. It's an amazing and touching movie. I never thought I would be interested in racing, but they explain it right in the beginning and manage to make it interesting and easy to follow. That's saying a lot for me as I've always thought racing to be a complete bore.

The three kids in this movie are probably the most charismatic subjects you will ever see in a documentary. Every interview (even with the parents) is remarkably candid and unique. The racing sequences themselves are exhilarating but its the moments that surprise and break your heart which make this movie complete. For a distinctly American sport, this film gives great insight into the lives of the youth here who pursue it.

Not to be missed.
