QUICK TAKE:
Drama: A race car designer and his engineer racer set out to develop a car that will defeat the Ferrari team at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race.
PLOT:
It's the 1960s and Ford Motor Company CEO Henry Ford II (TRACY LETTS) wants to shake things up to reinvigorate sales. With that order, one of his execs, Lee Iacocca (JON BERNTHAL), proposes that they need to build sexier cars to appeal to a younger generation of drivers. When Senior Vice-President Leo Beebee (JOSH LUCAS) complains that will take years, Lee proposes then that they buy financially struggling Ferrari and thus instantly have possession of desirable sports cars.

But Ferrari's owner pulls out of the deal at the last minute and insults Henry and his company in general. As a result, and essentially willing to write a blank check, Henry orders that they build a racecar that will defeat the Ferrari team at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race. Enter legendary race car driver Carroll Shelby (MATT DAMON) whose racing days were cut short by medical concerns and who now designs race cars with his right-hand man, Phil Remington (RAY McKINNON), and their small team.

The man who Carroll wants to join them is engineer Ken Miles (CHRISTIAN BALE) whose auto shop has just been seized by the IRS, much to the concern of his wife, Mollie (CAITRIONA BALFE), and their son, Peter (NOAH JUPE). Carroll knows Ken is the right man not only to design the car, but also to be its driver, something that doesn't sit well with Leo who doesn't think the opinionated Brit is the right image for their company. Nevertheless, and with the big race coming up, Carroll and Ken work together to design a car that will put the Ferrari team and their cars to shame.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
They might if they're into racecars and racing, or if they're fans of Damon, Bale or anyone else in the cast.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For some language and peril.

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!!!
