Academy Award-winners Matt Damon and Christian Bale star in FORD v FERRARI, based on the remarkable true story of the visionary American car designer Carroll Shelby (Damon) and the fearless British-born driver Ken Miles (Bale), who together battled 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.(Rotten Tomatoes)
The remarkable true story of visionary American car designer Carroll Shelby and fearless British-born driver Ken Miles, who together battled corporate interference, the laws of physics, and their own personal demons to build a revolutionary race car.
A full-bodied and exciting true-life story in which the men behind the wheels are just as dynamic as the machines they drive.

it’s entertaining even to someone with absolutely no skin in the racing game.
