QUICK TAKE:
Drama: Two 1970s era egotistical drivers compete for first place in the world of Formula One racing.
PLOT:
It's the early 1970s and James Hunt (CHRIS HEMSWORTH) and Niki Lauda (DANIEL BRUHL) have already established their rivalry in Formula 3 racing. While both are egotistical about their talents, James is the fun-loving playboy who enjoys driving fast and cheating death, while Niki is more reserved and analytical, and spends as much time working on his cars' performance as he does on himself.

Both eventually make their way into the highly coveted Formula 1 racing circuit and compete against each other over the years, with James meeting and then marrying model Suzy Miller (OLIVIA WILDE), while Niki manages to win over Marlene (ALEXANDRA MARIA LARA) who falls for him despite his lack of charming social skills.

The men's rivalry culminates in the 1976 Grands Prix, a series of races around the world where the driver with the most combined points ends up as the annual winner. With Niki being the current champion, James pushes himself to overtake and upstage his rival, a motivation that drives both racers to their limits.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're into Formula One racing, movies about racing and/or are fans of anyone in the cast, they might be interested.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For sexual content, nudity, language, some disturbing images and brief drug use.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
