Now we do think that France is a beautiful country spoiled only by the fact that its full of the French.

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 (Matt Damon) and the fearless British-born driver Ken Miles (Christian 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.
LE MANS ’66 is directed by James Mangold (LOGAN) he has said “I love stories that take you to a time when we were a little less cautious……….Now, we’ve become so corporate, liability-protected, computer simulated and risk averse it’s hard to imagine the same kind of discovery is even possible.

Le Mans 66 is released in the UK on 8th November 2019.
