Formula One is known for its big money, high-tech, and of course fast cars. Jackie Stewart is a pretty big name in the Formula One racing community and was also friends with a name that is another well-known name in the move world, Roman Polanski. Their friendship fostered a film about Stewart over the weekend of the 1971 Monaco Grand Prix.
The film originally had a small release in Europe but recently was saved from being destroyed. It was released at the Cannes Film festival in May and through a deal with Netflix was released in the US this week.
The film chronicles both Polanski and Stewart’s relationship while also giving a glimpse into the life of a champion Formula One driver. The film lacks the drama of newer documentaries but still holds up in a modern setting.
For racing and Polanski fans this is a must see.
