We watched the 2008 film Speed Racer, the Wachowskis’ visually dazzling adaptation of the classic anime. Speed comes from a family of mechanics and wants nothing more than to be a racecar driver, even though a dangerous race killed his older brother when he was a kid. He’s rising up the ranks of the sport and attracting big corporate sponsors, but the tempting deals are ruined when he finds out that they’re fixing all the races. He teams up with the mysterious Racer X to sabotage these business plans and show everyone that he can win the honest way!
