ABOUT THE FILMS:

FERRARI, 2023, Dir. Michael Mann, 124 Min, Neon, USA

Ferrari is set during the summer of 1957. Behind the spectacle and danger of 1950’s Formula 1, ex-racer, Enzo Ferrari, is in crisis. Bankruptcy stalks the company he and his wife, Laura, built from nothing ten years earlier. Their tempestuous marriage struggles with the mourning for their one son. Ferrari struggles with the acknowledgement of another. His drivers’ lust to win pushes them out to the edge. He wagers all in a roll of the dice on one race, the treacherous 1,000-mile race across Italy, the iconic Mille Miglia.

FORMAT: DCP

ALI, 2001, Dir. Michael Mann, 151 Min, Sony Repertory, USA

Commemorative Edition

Superstar Will Smith gives the performance of his career as boxing legend Muhammad Ali in a visually amazing epic drama from Academy Award nominated director Michael Mann. Muhammad Ali thrilled the world with his ground-breaking boxing victories in the ’60s and ’70s. But the man behind the legend is grappling with a tumultuous romantic life, his deeply held religious beliefs and the pressures of staying on top. A quick-witted, winning personality and strong friendships with close associates, including renowned newscaster Howard Cosell (Golden Globe nominee Jon Voight), help Ali “float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.” But faced with a life-changing conflict outside of the ring, the famously opinionated boxer is forced to rely on the one person he knows the best: himself.
