100 Word Review – Rush (2013)

You don’t have to care or know anything about racing cars to enjoy this film.

Based the true story of the rivalry between James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) on and off the track in the heady world of 1970s Formula One.

It is moving, tense and at points truly mesmerising. Bruhl’s extraordinary performance as Lauda was recognised by a Golden Globe nomination.

Written by the Oscar nominated Peter Morgan (The Last King Of Scotland, Frost/Nixon) and directed by Oscar winner Ron Howard (Frost/Nixon, A Beautiful Mind), this biopic is breath-taking. It is currently #160 of IMDb’s Top 250.
