Academy Award-winners Matt Damon and Christian Bale star as 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. Bale is nominated for Best Actor Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards for his performance.
Rated PG-13 for some language and peril, “Ford v Ferrari” runs two hours, 32 minutes.
