Went to the movie yesterday. First movie in quite a while. It definitely was worth the entry fee! Was it perfect?? Nah! But it was close to the reality, and it did stir some old childhood memories. Matt Damon wasn't a perfect Carole Shelby, but honestly I couldn't think of a better actor to portray the man. They seemed to have softened his character somewhat, but he's playing Shelby the old man, not the ball buster from the sixties. I think the Henry was a little dumbed down, he was more hands on as I recall. Mostly, what's screwed with is the time compression. But how do you crunch years of racing and a final race into two and half hours. It could have been a better miniseries. Otherwise, it's close to reality as the accounts that I have read tell it. I wasn't there, so who's to say? I think just about everyone that was there is gone now.
