The Williams sisters are unlike any other sports celebrities in America today, and so well-known that their last name need never be mentioned—not even in this documentary’s title. Venus and Serena Williams, tennis stars who endured years of training, triumph and hardship side by side, have worked as a team despite countless opportunities for their blood ties to split them apart. Venus and Serena turns the spotlight on their hardest year, as physical challenges and personal changes reveal the inspiring depth of their commitment to each other.
