STEVE MCQUEEN: THE MAN & LE MANS (OPENS NOVEMBER 20TH)

This film was released on Friday 20th November 2015 and is no longer screening. 

It’s 1969 and Steve McQueen is at the height of his fame; the enormoussuccess of Bullitt and The Thomas Crown Affair have made him more than a star – he’s an icon, The King of Cool. Eager to solidify his position with a move into production, McQueen set about realising a passion project, to make the ultimate car-racing film centred on the gruelling 24-hour rally in Le Mans. Little did he know hewould lose his marriage, friendships and almost his life in the process.

Viewed through the frame of the troubled Le Mans production, McQueen is revealed as a complex personality, alienating friends and colleagues with his unyielding behaviour and refusal to compromise his vision for the film. He is, however, possessed of a genuine mastery of technique when it came to capturing the thrill of the race on film.
