They are known as the greatest sister-act professional tennis players ever and now they are coming to the big screen. Venus and Serena Williams are giving fans a glimpse into their day-to-day lives as tennis stars in their new self-titled documentary, Venus and Serena.
According to Magnolia Pictures, the project gives an “intimate documentary inside the lives of tennis superstars Venus and Serena Williams, when injuries and illness threatened to take them out of the game.”
“Set against the 2011 and 2012 tennis seasons directors Maiken Baird and Michelle Major attain a privileged intimacy with the sisters, and their inner circle of family members, trainers and friends, as they fight to get back on top,” the film’s description reads. “Whatever opinion you hold of the Williams sisters, you’ll come away with a deeper appreciation of what drives them to greatness.”
Along with a look back at their rise to fame, the 100-minute documentary will include exclusive interviews by Chris Rock, John McEnroe, Bill Clinton, and Anna Wintour.
The film has already received rave reviews at the Toronto International Film Festival and the Miami International Film Festival. It’s scheduled to hit iTunes on April 4 and theaters on May 10.
