Storyline

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 Michelle Major

Eye-opening!
29 December 2013 | by sfsports-883-717214See all my reviews

This is an eye-opening film with many surprising moments. It touches on a lot of subjects and controversial moments in the Williams sisters' careers. There are some raw emotions at the core of this film, and it offers a significant glimpse into how they became the superstar athletes we know today. Even if you think you knew a lot about Venus and Serena before, you'll feel like you know much more after seeing it. The filmmakers managed to get a lot of unfiltered access, and we're lucky to see and hear the Williams discuss things you rarely get to hear them speak about. This film is touching, honest, funny, and very real. It's definitely one of the best documentaries of the year.
