The latest trailer for Ferrari has been released online. Directed by Michael Mann and written by Troy Kennedy Martin, the film is an adaptation of Brock Yates’ Enzo Ferrari: The Man, the Cars, the Races, the Machine. Ferrari stars Adam Driver as Enzo Ferrari, alongside Penélope Cruz, Shailene Woodley, Patrick Dempsey, Sarah Gadon, Gabriel Leone, and Jack O’Connell.
Here is the plot synopsis:
“It is the summer of 1957. Behind the spectacle of Formula 1, ex-racer Enzo Ferrari is in crisis. Bankruptcy threatens the factory he and his wife, Laura built from nothing ten years earlier. Their volatile marriage has been battered by the loss of their son, Dino a year earlier. Ferrari struggles to acknowledge his son Piero with Lina Lardi. Meanwhile, his drivers’ passion to win pushes them to the edge as they launch into the treacherous 1,000-mile race across Italy, the Mille Miglia.”
Additionally, a new poster was also released, which you can look at below:
Our editor-in-chief, Joey Magidson, had the chance to watch the film at the New York Film Festival and praised the performances of both Cruz and Driver in Mann’s latest movie:
“Penélope Cruz is best in show, while Adam Driver is a cool customer as our title character. Cruz gets an early comedic highlight, though her role is often of the more tragic variety. She brings depth to a character that’s had so much taken from her, It’s easily one of her strongest performances to date. Driver doesn’t always let us underneath his skin here, but it’s intentional. Watching the man struggle to keep control as everything around him is shifting, that’s just compelling cinema.” You can read his full review of the movie here.
