A new documentary about the lives of tennis queens Venus and Serena Williams is set to be released in theaters in May.
The film, produced by Magnolia Pictures, will take an in-depth look into the lives of the most powerful dynamic sister-duo tennis has ever seen. It recognizes the struggles they’ve faced in the sport, enduring racism and sexism to become a dominant force in the game for over a decade. It also includes interviews with Bill Clinton, Billie Jean King, John McEnroe, Arnon Milchan, Gay Telese, and Anna Wintour among others.
The film also takes a look at the family dynamic, including their father, Richard Williams. The Williams sisters were reportedly upset over the portrayal of their father “his foibles, from his out-of-wedlock children to a 78-page manifesto he had plotting out his daughters’ success at a very young age.“
This should be interesting.
The film debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival in September and received positive reviews.
I look forward to taking a peek into the lives of Venus and Serena. While Serena is more prominent in the media, it will be nice to see more of Venus. I’m also interested to seeing how they prepare for their matches. Moreover, I want to see how they handled and overcame the racism that still plagues the game to become the powerhouses they are today.
Will you watch it?
