Ford v Ferrari is a sports-drama film by James Mangold. The movie features Academy Award® winners Christian Bale and Matt Damon in the lead roles in pursuit of perfection.

Ford v Ferrari is all about how American car designer Carroll Shelby (Damon) and daring British-born driver Ken Miles (Bale) partner to build a revolutionary race car for Ford Motor Company.
Ford v Ferrari is a beautiful tale of friendship, family, and an impossible feat woven together seamlessly in a true-to-life sports drama film. The incredible performances by Bale and Damon do justice to the characters. Their relationships are well-realized achieving the right connect with the audience and rooting for the protagonist to achieve victory. All this with a gripping story allowed Ford v Ferrari to earn many accolades. The Academy Awards nominated the movie for four Oscars.
If you want to see how Ken Miles and Carrol Shelby led Ford’s racing department to improve its Ford GT and managed to defeat Enzo Ferrari’s Le Mans Racing team, then the movie is perfect for you. However, it is not a documentary film as Mangold took some creative liberties to make the story more interesting than it really was.
In the end, Ford v Ferrari is an amazing movie and if you are a fan of motorsports, then don’t forget to watch Ford v Ferrari on Disney+Hotstar when it starts streaming from 30th June.
