VENUS AND SERENA (Toronto International Film Festival Release, Toronto, Ontario, Canada 2012)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

Venus and Serena—documentary—does not waste time on the reality of their childhood; but, focuses on the drivers that create a different reality than they would experience outside those drivers. Many positive thinking books touch on how lives can modify. This movie follows the actual process and shows the hard work necessary to change life ‘facts’ into something new. It allows the focus to move from the wishing state to devotion to the dream, to the day-by-day work necessary to materialize the dream, the realization of the dream. Wonderful watch, especially for those who desire change but may be uncertain how that change accomplishes in real life. The movie places small snippets of the girls’ life events in an order that becomes very easy to understand. Excellent watch that does not dumb down the process of making the dream into the reality.
