Named Ford vs Ferrari in many countries, Le Mans ’66 gives us an epic sports drama which explains how the two motorcar giants were actually at war, when they stood face-to-face on the racetrack of a legendary race called as 24 hours of Le Mans – which actually lasted for a period of twenty four hours. It also shows the twists and turns and politics within the corporate world of the leading automobile companies.
You are in for a full throttle of races, drama and some superlative performances. Praises fall short when we speak about both Christian Bale (as Ken Miles) and Matt Damon (as Carroll Shelby) because they have, in their own style and kind of films, given us noteworthy portrayals over the period of time. And this surely will be written in the books as one of their career’s best. May it be the direction of James Mangold or the support of the side cast – Jon Bernthal (as Lee Lacocca), Catriona Balfe (as Mollie Miles), Tracy Letts (as Henry Ford The Second), Josh Lucas (as Leo Beebe), Noah Jupe (as Peter Miles), Remo Jirone (as Enzo Ferrari) and Ray McKinnon (as Phil Remington), both are stupendous in their own way.
