One of the only films I saw worth seeing this past year was Ford vs. Ferrari. It did not disappoint.
The story of a fish-out-of-water British Mechanic slash racing driver, a Texan maverick, the gigantic Ford Motor Company and its functionaries, and lying Italians at Ferrari, to watch the film is see Ford's efforts to get back at Enzo for a business deal gone sour iat the 24 Hours of Le Mans. A bit long at 2 1/2 hours, I think any guy could appreciate the film, even if not a gearhead. Miles and Shelby's strong personalities only make the story more interesting. Yes, the film is grounded in fact.
I don't want to share too many plot details, but the noted Carol Shelby and Ken Miles at every turn are fighting the bureaucrats at Ford to ensure that can compete at Le Mans. The end is a bit poignant, but the message I take away is to do what you need to, and everyone else be damned.
