Ever since Venus and Serena Williams started playing in tennis tournaments, they've provoked strong reactions - from awe and admiration to suspicion and resentment. They've been winning championships for over a decade, pushing the limits of longevity in such a demanding sport. How long can they last? In Venus & Serena, we gain unprecedented access into their lives during the most intimidating year of their career. Over the course of 2011, Venus grappled with an energy-sapping autoimmune disease while Serena battled back from a life-threatening pulmonary embolism. Neither Venus nor Serena let their adversities hold them back. They drew their greatest strength from each other. Written by
Review: This is a great documentary about the Williams sisters who have taken the tennis world by storm. The director done a good job, giving you an insight into the past and present life of the sisters and there family. You get to see many different aspects of there life's which has been an up and downhill struggle. You don't have to be into tennis to enjoy the movie because there is something for everyone and you can't help feeling emotional about there journey. Enjoyable!
Round-Up: I don't know why this movie wasn't released early last year because the people who made the film, had followed the Williams from 2011 to early 2012. Anyway, as a black man, I can't help thinking how much the sisters must have inspired other black athletes around the world. It's a true rags to riches story which will definitely make you look at the Williams sisters in a different way.
I recommend this movie to people who have followed the Williams terrific career and domination of the tennis world. 6/10
