Dubbed Ford v Ferrari for the American market (insert joke here), this breathless action-drama charts the real-life pursuit of the Ford Motor Company to challenge Ferrari at the world famous Le Mans race. Starring acting heavyweights Christian Bale and Matt Damon, this is a sensational story that’s brought vividly to life through some truly remarkable car race sequences. Under the watchful eye of director James Mangold (who was responsible for Logan), this is a real crowd-pleaser, with two wonderful leading performances from Bale and Damon. The frenetic action of the race is the hook, but there’s a tremendous amount of emotional weight behind this tale too. Great support from Caitriona Balfe, Jon Bernthal, Josh Lucas, Tracy Letts, Ray McKinnon and Noah Jupe too.
