Movie review: 'Speed Sisters,' documentary follows first Middle Eastern female racing team

Parents need to know that "Speed Sisters" is a documentary about the first all-female car racing team in the Middle East. It follows the four racers and their coach as they compete in races while trying to navigate life in occupied Palestine. The dangers of living in such a highly militarized zone are clear: scenes show armed soldiers and explosions at military checkpoints, and there are mentions of air strikes and the use of tear gas (one woman says that the smell of tear gas reminds her of walking to school as a child). In one intense scene, a racer is shot at and hit by a tear gas canister. She becomes visibly upset and sustains a serious bruise. Most of the movie is in Arabic with English subtitles, although a few of the young women speak English. Swearing is infrequent, but "crap" and "ass" are said in English, while "bastard" and other insults show up in the subtitles. The women are excellent examples of the power of persevering and persisting even when being treated unjustly.
