From legendary director Ron Howard (Apollo 13) comes the tale of Britain’s most charismatic Formula One driver, James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth), and his fierce rivalry with Austrian racer Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl). Set in the glamorous but dangerous world of Grand Prix racing in the 1970s, the men are chalk and cheese in their approach to driving and life in general. Cool, calculating Lauda is contrasted with hot-headed, champagne-loving womaniser Hunt as the 1976 World Championship comes to a thrilling conclusion. Beautiful cinematography brilliantly brings the era to life as sport really does become a matter of life and death. This is a must for anyone that loved Asif Kapadia’s Senna.
