#MUSTWATCH: FORD V FERRARI 2019 [WATCH TRAILER]



As Enzo Ferrari’s fast Rosso-Corsa racing cars dominate the mid-1960s motorsport world, the American car designer, Carroll Shelby, is forced to retire after winning the demanding 1959 ’24 Hours of Le Mans’ endurance race. But, before long, an unexpected proposition by the Vice President of Henry Ford’s motor company, Lee Iacocca, will offer an opportunity to beat the Italians at their own game. Now, under those pressing circumstances, the British sports car driver and racing engineer, Ken Miles, reluctantly agrees to lend a hand and improve the firm’s image, as Ford’s race team has less than ninety days to rewrite history. As a result, the non-conformist duo comes up with the mighty Ford GT40 Mk I high-performance racing car. Can Shelby and Miles break Ferrari’s streak?



American car designer Carroll Shelby and driver Ken Miles battle corporate interference and the laws of physics to build a revolutionary race car for Ford in order to defeat Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966.

Unlike many car action-oriented movies, this one is based on a true story, and fact-based dramas tend to take themselves more seriously. It is sort of a shared biopic between legendary sports car designer Carroll Shelby and race car driver Ken Miles. The movie focuses on their efforts to beat Ferrari at Le Mans, a story I’m well aware of (like I said, bonafide car nut). And Mangold is an Oscar-winning filmmaker collaborating with Oscar-winning people such as Damon and Bale. And boy do their talents shine in this movie. The driving engine of the story, if you will, is the loving and bashful relationship between Shelby and Miles, portrayed brilliantly by Damon and Bale in a manner that contends with the dynamic duo of DiCaprio and Pitt in Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.
