Set against the sexy, glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing in the 1970s, the film is based on the true story of a great sporting rivalry between handsome English playboy James Hunt (Hemsworth), and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Austrian driver Niki Lauda (Bruhl). The story follows their distinctly different personal styles on and off the track, their loves and the astonishing 1976 season in which both drivers were willing to risk everything to become world champion in a sport with no margin for error: if you make a mistake, you die.

The fatal accident depicted in the Watkins Glen scene was that of French driver François Cevert, who won the race the previous year. Cevert was killed during practice for the 1973 U.S. Grand Prix. Jackie Stewart, Cevert's team mate and mentor, withdrew and retired from racing after the crash. A similar accident occurred one year later, when Austrian rookie Helmuth Koinigg died during the 1974 Grand Prix. See more »

10/10. Best Picture of the year, of 14 years. Genius movie.
Honestly, I watch a sh*t ton of movies. I'm a filmmaker myself. I like to be inspired and to inspire others. You can't deny when you see something and you're like..."Wow. F*ck. That really hit home." Well, Wow. F*ck. That really hit home. I went to see this movie thinking, "the trailer looks cool, I'm a big Ron Howard fan, and I love racing cars." But by no means did I think this movie would breach my Top 3 of all time. No movie has in the past 14 years or so. If you like racing cars, suspense, action, love and romance... hell, if you like watching movies at all or even hearing a good story. Do yourself a favour, and watch this movie. How many movies have 2 main characters you fall in love with? Best Picture of the year, the last 14 years.
