Ford v Ferrari is a motor sport drama about the development of the legendary Ford GT40, a race car that was developed to defeat Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The best auto racing movie since Rush (2013), Mangold creates a good deal of excitement, despite the well-known success of the racing team. Apart from the car itself, which is the star of this film, Christian Bale’s performance as the cantankerous driver Ken Miles stands above the rest (Klaus Ming January 2020).
