Ford vs Ferrari

Ford v Ferrari - The GBY

Denise and Tony’s favorite movie at TIFF 2019 was Ford vs Ferrari.  Kind of a buddy movie, with fast cars and silly businessmen thrown in.  The chemistry between Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) and Ken Miles (Christian Bale, Hostiles) seemed genuine.  I thought the big business shenanigans were fascinating.  The exhilarating car scenes kept my heart pumping.   Miles and his wife, Mollie’s (Caitriona Balfe) sweet family dynamic with their son, Peter (Noah Jupe) added depth to the storyline.  Jon Bernthal (The Peanut Butter Falcon) and Josh Lucas kept the movie moving at a good pace.
