How is the connection between all those men? Well, Niki Lauda is played by Daniel Bruehl at the film Rush, while Chris Hemworth plays Niki’s rival, James Hunt. The story, directed by Ron Howard, is set in 1976, at the pinnacle of Formula 1’s golden era, and is based on the battle Niki Lauda had with James Hunt for the F1 title, in Monza. And Salvatore Ferragamo designed the costumes worn by Niki Lauda’s and his wife Marlene Lauda’s characters.
Critics are in love with Daniel Bruehl, saying his performance is absolutely brilliant. Let’s check it on 13th September in the cinemas.
