2023 (USA, UK, Italy) (Biography, Drama, History)
Starring: Adam Driver, Penélope Cruz, Shailene Woodley, Sarah Gadon
Director: Michael Mann
Set in the summer of 1957, with Enzo Ferrari’s auto empire in crisis, the ex-racer turned entrepreneur pushes himself and his drivers to the edge as they launch into the Mille Miglia, a treacherous 1,000-mile race across Italy.
FERRARI is an exceptional immersive experience. Not just for the way it virtually puts you in the driver’s seat during the racing sequences, but also, and more so, for the way it puts you in the mind of its title character as he negotiates a major turning point in his life. Michael Mann’s opus about the legendary engineer spins this one episode into a satisfyingly complete biography of how life shaped the man who shaped auto racing.
