Thanks to Micheal Mann’s sleek stewardship and intense performances from Adam Driver and Penélope Cruz, this adaptation of Brock Yates’ 1991 book Enzo Ferrari: The Man and the Machine proves a complex character study of a pioneer torn between his warring instincts. Ferrari establishes its tone from the outset with a newsreel-esque prologue and then, with a scene in 1957 in which Enzo drives away from his home. This initial glimpse is of the tycoon departing the house he covertly shares with his mistress Lina Lardi (Shailene Woodley), and their young son—an early indication that his circumstances are far from smooth. Enzo knows how to build a car but his life is a much less carefully constructed affair, and that becomes clear when he returns to his primary residence to discover his spouse Laura (Cruz) waiting for him. Ferrari begins with Enzo’s company is on the verge of bankruptcy; and rival Maserati is threatening to break one of Ferrari’s speed records. Upon hearing that they’ve been surpassed, Enzo tells his colleagues that they’re to reclaim their title.
