4.0 out of 5 stars Sister sister April 7, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
"Venus and Serena" follows the tennis stars during 2011, when Serena was coming back from a series of severe injuries and Venus was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. At the time, it was unclear whether either sister would be able to play much longer. This material is presented along with archival interviews dating back to when the sisters were girls in Compton, California, as well as film of other key events in their lives.

The movie presents a nice balance between their tennis careers and personal lives. Obviously, this documentary is going to appeal most to fans of Venus and/or Serena. I like both of them and am a huge Serena fan in particular. I read articles about them routinely, so there wasn't a great deal new here for me, but it was still interesting. The story of two sisters from Compton becoming the best tennis players of their generation is amazing no matter how many times it's told, imo.

I was disappointed that Venus' role in helping get women get equal prize money wasn't discussed; overall, Venus is given a bit less attention and too often painted simply as a 'protector' to Serena. Also, there wasn't much behind-the-scenes information as I hoped. For example, there are numerous people always around the sisters, but they are rarely introduced. Finally, the interviews made for the documentary are just ordinary - I don't recall any earth-shattering insights. But then Venus and Serena both tend to play things pretty close to the vest. I thoroughly enjoyed this documentary, and I think fans will as well. Others will probably want to skip this movie.

definitely insightful into the way the ladies have lived their lives in public with grace and dignity. I wish we had more examples like these ladies who are not flawless but are living their lives in purposeful and meaningful way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Venus and Serena documentary July 28, 2013
By gerald
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Being a huge fan of the phenomenal sister act, I've pretty much heard it all regarding their lives and ascension to the upper echelons of tennis, but this documentary was an even deeper glimpse into their very guarded lives. The information I was already familiar with was packaged in a way that made it seem as if it were the first time I was hearing it and there was new material in the way of "straight from the horses mouth" insight into how the most colorful characters in the family - Venus, Serena and Richard - think away from the glare of any unwelcome media presence. Along with gaining insight, the documentary also inspires by capturing the full breadth of what it takes to set goals and achieve them with the odds stacked against you. So, if you fear not learning anything new from viewing Venus and Serena, I would assure you that you will come away with yet another valuable perspective on this history-making dynamic duo.

I am so happy this Movie was made!!! Love it, and must own a copy soon! I have nothing but LOVE for them because they truly have made a positive impact on Women's Tennis. While I'm not able to watch all their matches, I watch as many as I can. This Movie is very motivational, and Educational, too! I respect their Father, Richard for having the Dream he had for his daughters, and for following through. I recommend this Movie to all ages and groups.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE FABULOUS WILLIAMS SISTERS and FAMILY! May 28, 2013
By KatKat
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Already being a HUGE fan of Venus and Serena Williams and an owner of "Raising Tennis Aces- The Williams Story", 2002, I was elated to see another wonderful film highlighting the intimate parts of their lives.

"Venus and Serena" expands beyond just what the two sisters have done in their illustrious careers through 2011. This films gives the viewer an opportunity to hear their mother Oracene Price speak very candidly when giving Serena advice on beating the "crap" out of her opponents and even giving a "word" of advice to Mr. Williams new wife. You also get to see the "never-quit" spirit that each one continues to harness as they struggle through physical ailments. The workouts that the sisters endure while rehabing are intense; this is what separates these two sisters from the rest. Their persevearance is astonishing, as is their love for one another.

It is well known that Serena and Venus already have an incredibly deep bond, and this movie just enhances the fibers of that relationship even more. These two are co-joined in heart, spirit and love. Their connection jumps off of the screen as they speak to one another and about one another. Their devotion, though, is not just limited to one another, but their entire entourage as well.

This is a "must see" movie for any fan or curious seeker of why these two women are the phenomenal dominant game changers to ever grace the tennis courts. Venus and Serena Williams are a force to be reckoned with! Testimonies by their parents, former coaches, John McEnroe, former President Bill Clinton, comedienne Chris Rock, Editor of Vogue Ana Wintour and many more contribute to that sentiment. These are two fabulous sisters with extraordinary talent, family and love.
