Description

CLOSING NIGHT: Academy Award® winners Christian Bale and Matt Damon star in this energetic, fully loaded biographical drama from acclaimed director James Mangold (Walk the Line, Logan, 3:10 to Yuma; Girl, Interrupted). Based on the remarkable true story of visionary American automotive designer Carroll Shelby (Damon) and fearless British-born driver Ken Miles (Bale), Ford v Ferrari details how an eccentric, underdog team of engineers battled corporate interference, the laws of physics, and their own personal demons to build the revolutionary GT40 race car for Ford Motor Company. Their purpose? To challenge the dominating race cars of Enzo Ferrari at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans competition in France. An outstanding ensemble featuring Jon Bernthal (Sicario), Tracey Letts (Lady Bird, MVFF 2017), and Josh Lucas (American Psycho) as legendary figures of the automotive industry Lee Iacocca, Henry Ford II, and Leo Beebe rounds out this high-octane cinematic tour de force, a crowd-pleasing, exhilarating ride sure to race to the awards season finish line at the head of the pack.
