Ford v. Ferrari

Ford v Ferrari

January 17, 2020

This event occurred as part of the 19/20 Hop Film season. This is an archived view.

American car designer Carroll Shelby and fearless British race car driver Ken Miles battle corporate interference, the laws of physics and their own personal demons in this smart, entertaining spectacle.


The story is based on a real-life quest that united a trio of unlikely, often antagonistic allies— corporate titan Henry Ford II, former driver and legendary car designer Carroll Shelby and expert but irascible racer Ken Miles—in what seemed an impossible quest: taking one of the world's great driving titles, Le Mans' Grand Prix of Endurance, away from an arrogant Ferrari racing team that held everyone else, but especially Ford, in withering contempt.

As can be guessed by the title, this is a film about fast cars and the men who want to make them faster. But Ford v Ferrari has virtues well beyond immersive racing footage, offering humor, passion, strong personalities and stronger conflicts plus sterling acting by stars Matt Damon and Christian Bale and a tip-top supporting cast.

"A barnburner of a motion picture that mainlines heart-in-mouth excitement and tug-at-the-heart emotion, "Ford v Ferrari" is made the way Hollywood used to make them, a glorious throwback that combines a smart modern sensibility with the best of traditional storytelling," (Los Angeles Times). D: James Mangold, US, 2019,

Nominated for 4 Academy Awards including Best Picture.

“A full-bodied and exciting true-life story in which the men behind the wheels are just as dynamic as the machines they drive.”
