Chris Hemsworth, brother of Liam and best known currently as “Thor” stars as English Formula 1 racer James Hunt in this real-life story set in the 1970’s.
Hunt, and Austrian driver Nick Lauda (played by Daniel Brühl) were rivals on the Formula 1 circuit. Although the movie takes place in the world of racing, it’s really more about the relationship between these two polarly opposite men, and how they pushed each other to be better – both as drivers and as people.
Olivia Wilde is Hunt’s love interest, a super model who understands the limelight and is attracted to Hunt until his ego gets too big for the relationship.
Rush is an interesting movie that’s worth seeing. A little slice of history.
