Movie of the Week – 14-11-19

Do you like movies about cars? If so, then we have the movie for you! Yes, this week sees the testosterone-heavy Ford v Ferrari, starring Christian Bale, Matt Damon. There’s also a lot of Adam Driver, with the release of Marriage Story and The Report! It’s not long until Star Wars is released either. Little Monster is good fun and the less said about Last Christmas the better. We were never going to like that one, to be honest.

For our film of the week, we went for one of those Adam Driver options…
