What to Watch in November

The Last Race

Riverhead Raceway refuses to be laid to rest. Representing the last bastion of small-town stock car racing in Long Island, New York, its blue-collar drivers and fervent fanbase defend a quarter-mile race track from skulking real estate developers intent on buying out the land. Director Michael Dweck's intimate portrait conveys quintessential track life: eccentric locals, pugnacious racing, and a pair of ardent owners in Barbara and Jim Cromarty. The Last Race, which hits theaters and digital platforms later this month, is a peculiar escape to simpler times where local racers are heralded as rockstars and life's most enduring challenges can be left in the dust for an evening.

Check out all of the Sundance-supported films coming to theaters and digital platforms this November.
