Friday To-See: "Racing Dreams"

Posted By on Fri, Jun 4, 2010 at 11:20 AM

Dir.: Marshall Curry, 94 mins.

Think of it as “Spellbound” with nitrous oxide. Or “Mad Hot Ballroom” in the fast lane. Or just watch the trailer and join in on the anticipation for this movie that's zooming around the Times office. Following three pre-teen NASCAR hopefuls in the World Kart Association (think mutton bustin' rodeos for racing) throughout the course of a season. They zoom around the track in pint-sized race cars and, of course, keep their turbulent, pubescent tempers in check in the face of tumultuous home lives, demands at school, racing practice and, well, puberty. Sure to be a crowd-pleaser, this one took home the Best Documentary award at last year's Tribeca Film Festival.

"Racing Dreams" plays at 11:30 a.m. at Riverdale screen #2.
