Watch Racing for Time - Alternative Versions.
A group of female prisoners at a US institution for young offenders get
the sports-movie feel-good life turnaround when their warden picks them
for the prison running team.
The film, based on a true story, cannot avoid the clichés of the genre
nor is it stylistically or cinematically sophisticated; but this is not
its aim. Rather its message is allowed to take centre stage, that a
good cause can overcome almost any personal and societal struggle. This
is conveyed with growing momentum and charm as the story unfolds.
The young cast put in strong performances and their characters command
respect and sympathy. We see how their difficult lives and lack of
support as much as bad choices have landed them in the prison system
and how patterns of destructive behaviour, peer-enforced, threaten to
undermine the efforts of the wardens to turn them around.
The film reminded me, in a condensed manner, of the storyline in season
four of 'The Wire' where the corner-boy delinquent children in the
school are placed into a research group where they can discuss and
evaluate their lives and motivations for engaging in crime under
supportive supervision. Racing For Time's message is similar in that it
espouses a collaborative, activity-based response to juvenile
The film is worth mentioning also for its focus exclusively on female
young offenders and exploration of their predicaments. Many of the
characters have suffered at the hands of men and, though young and
attractive, the actors' sexual appeal is not exploited in any way in
this film. This makes it unusual in the context of American cinema.
