Academy Award-winners Matt Damon and Christian Bale star in Le Mans 66, based on the true story of the visionary American car designer Carroll Shelby (Damon) and the fearless British-born driver Ken Miles (Bale), who together battled corporate interference, the laws of physics, and their own personal demons to build a revolutionary race car for Ford Motor Company and take on the dominating race cars of Enzo Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France in 1966.A mid-1960s corporate rivalry may not seem like the stuff of fist-pumping, crowd-pleasing cinema, yet the battle is sketched with such lan, all high-gloss surfaces, scotch-swilling intrigue and rat-a-tat dialogue, that its impossible not to be drawn in. ★★★★ EmpireDirector: James MangoldCast: Christian Bale, Matt DamonRun time: 2 hours 32 mins
