This is definitely one of the better movies I’ve seen in the past few years. Racing Dreams is a documentary centered around these young go kart racers competing in a national championship and I guess these kids have their own struggles with family, finances, and figuring out what they want to do in life. I had these struggles too, but somehow they were a lot less charming and endearing in my late twenties then they are for these kids in the movie. I think my tastes in movies have changed a lot from ten years ago. In Philly I’d go watch the latest blockbuster every weekend with my friends and now I see only a handful every year. I think I’ve become somewhat of a movie snob too, dissing movies for being formulaic or conventional. Anyway, I’d recommend this movie, even if the thought of preteens going around in circles on a track doesn’t appeal to you. I give it two thumbs up! Four stars! Ten balloons! Forty nine elephants! Three hundred seventy grams of orange juice! Bah, these scales are all arbitrary anyway.
