Le Mans ’66
by James Mangold
Just a few years ago, Carroll Shelby won the legendary 24-hour race at Le Mans, but now the engineer is left watching from the sidelines. However, when Ford Motor Company commissions him to design a car that will break the eternal dominance of Enzo Ferrari’s Italian racing cars, he feels the adrenaline rushing back into his veins. He teams up with fearless British racing driver Ken Miles. In order to make the impossible possible, the two must not only battle the laws of physics, but also their client’s constant interventions as well as their own demons. Director James Mangold stages an electrifying, high-octane biopic that takes us back to 1966. Matt Damon and Christian Bale manoeuvre every obstacle, driven by the unconditional passion to reach the finish line first.
