Ford v Ferrari
Christian Bale and Matt Damon star as two racers, hired by Ferrari and Ford respectively, as Ford tries to engineer a car that is finally fast enough to beat a Ferrari. In other words, one fast car tries to beat an even faster car. There's racing, crashes, and guys yelling things like "faster!" I'm just guessing.

Barefoot: The Mark Baumer Story

The documentary about his life, directed by local filmmaker Julie Sokolow, has its Pittsburgh premiere at the Three Rivers Film Festival. Read our interview with Sokolow here.
