FERRARI (in theatres)

Adam Driver depicts Enzo Ferrari (1898-1988) with a silent, somber steeliness as he navigates his failing automobile empire while balancing his grieving wife Laura (1900-78) played with a poignancy rarely seen in film by Penelope Cruz; (they lost a son, Dino (1932- 1956) to Duchenne muscular dystrophy) and his mistress Linda Lardi (shallow, insubstantial, insignificant performance by Shailene Woodley) and their son, Piero (1945-); it is the summer of 1957 and the film centers on the Mille Migial race; director Michael Mann and cinematographer Eric Messerschmidt top the scales in flights of soaring wonderment, breathless turns and stunning mishaps, defying human endurance, challenging believability, wallowing, smothered in the gorgeous Italian landscape; every curve foreshadows success or death. 

“Ferrari” edifies in the selection of race drivers, stamina, ambition and commitment to the sport. “Racing is a great mania to which one must sacrifice everything, without reticence, without hesitation.” Enzo Ferrari lived his dream, never swayed or deterred from his allegiance.
