Movie for Week 20: Le Mans

Apart from documentaries (see: Documentary for Week 20: Le Mans), the legends of Le Mans lend themselves perfectly to be fictionalised in movies.

Steve McQueen starred in the 1971 film Le Mans, a fictional 24 Hours of Le Mans race featuring footage from the 1970 race.

The 2015 documentary Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans chronicles the making of the 1971 movie. Focussing on Steve McQueen, the movie tells a story of a failing personal life and professional career.
