The excitement and the excesses of 1970s Formula One come alive in this thrilling film from director Ron Howard (Angels & Demons). Chris Hemsworth (Thor) steps into the role of playboy British driver James Hunt while Daniel Brühl is Niki Lauda, Hunt’s arch-rival and competition for the title of World Driver. Their rivalry culminates in the race for the 1976 championship, during which Lauda suffers a horrendous accident in Germany that leaves him badly burned. Against the odds, he quickly returns to driving as he and Hunt battle for the ultimate accolade. Brilliantly re-creating the world both on and off the track, this is a tour de force in film-making and a must see whether you like motorsport or not.
