Ferrari joins Barbie, Oppenheimer, and The Boy and the Heron on the Top Ten List selected by the National Board of Review in recognition of extraordinary cinema released in 2023. Adam Driver (Marriage Story, BlacKkKlansman) gives a passionately controlled performance as Enzo Ferrari, the racecar creator who famously said: “Racing is a great mania to which one must sacrifice everything…” Michael Mann’s masterful film covers three months in 1957, when Ferrari is a symbol of Italian ingenuity and grace. Beneath the shiny surface, he is tormented by the need to win the dangerous – thrillingly filmed – Mille Miglia. At home, he must face the threats of his ex-wife and former partner (Cruz) to withdraw her shares of the company, after she discovers his mistress Lina (Shailene Woodley) and Piero, their son. “There is an unstoppable force at the center of Michael Mann’s Ferrari. One moment it has you in the throes of ecstasy; the next, fearing for your life. I’m talking, of course, about Penélope Cruz”. – Rolling Stone.
