Matt Damon and Christian Bale star as the men trying to take Ford to victory against the Italian flair of Ferrari in the Le Mans 24 hour race. Henry Ford II (Tracy Letts), his pride wounded by a failed takeover bid, vows to break Ferrari’s winning streak. He tasks Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) with tuning the car and finding a racer to get it over the finish line first.
Enter dare-devil racer Ken Miles (Christian Bale). Keeping the ex-tank commander's temperament under wraps against Ford’s corporate pressure and interference is just the start of Caroll's problems.
James Mangold (Logan, Walk the Line) draws out both the compulsive drive of the team and the winning friendship at its centre. Bringing a visceral sense of the life-or-death stakes behind the wheel, Le Mans ’66 is gripping until the chequered flag.
