FORD v FERRARI CENTERPIECE

Return to Virtual Cinema

 It’s one of the most legendary tales in the history of motorsports. It’s also the dramatic story of the friendship between two racing legends – Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) and Ken Miles (Christian Bale). Henry Ford II, looking for a way to rev up excitement and sagging sales for his family’s brand, recruits designer Carroll Shelby to develop a vehicle that can best those built by Italian racing legend Enzo Ferrari for the upcoming 1966 24 Hours of LeMans Race. Shelby knows exactly who he needs on his team– the talented and hot-headed test driver Ken Miles. They’ve got just 90 days to pull off the impossible.  Shelby, Miles and their ragtag crew battle corporate interference, the laws of physics and their own personal demons to develop a revolutionary vehicle that will outshine every competitor. But their determined and tireless efforts take a huge personal toll. From the starting gate, Director James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma,Walk the Line) takes us on a thrilling, high-speed ride that doesn’t let up as it races towards its nail-biting finish line. Featuring a terrific score by MFF’s 2015 Distinguished Composer honoree, Marco Beltrami.  SATURDAY NIGHT CENTERPIECE
