Ford v Ferrari (Movie): Tipstor® Pick
Summary: Visionary American car designer Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) and fearless British-born driver Ken Miles (Christian Bale) battle corporate interference, the laws of physics, and their own personal demons to build a revolutionary race car for Ford Motor Company and take on the dominating race cars of Enzo Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France in 1966.
Starring: Adam Mayfield, Caitriona Balfe, Christian Bale, Dallas Chandler, Ian Harding, Jenelle McKee, JJ Feild, Jon Bernthal, Jonathan LaPaglia, Josh Lucas, Matt Damon, Noah Jupe, Ray McKinnon, Remo Girone, Roberta Sparta, Stefania Spampinato, Tracy Letts, Wallace Langham, Wyatt Nash
Movie: Ford v Ferrari
Director: James Mangold
Genre(s): Action, Biography, Drama, Sport
The movie is an old-fashioned rouser with a lot of new-fashioned virtuosity. The chemistry between Bale and Damon is what makes the movie move the way it does, along with the script. Bale alone in the race car figuring out how to win and survive is where the film really sings. Slick, thrilling and saturated with vivid hues and 60s can-do optimism, Le Mans ’66, James Mangold’s follow-up to Logan, is a precision-tooled machine of a movie.
