The Irishman
Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran is an Irish war veteran and works for Russell Bufalino, a mafia boss in northeastern Pennsylvania. Crime and violence are part of his everyday life. His good work is rewarded by Russell recommending him to Jimmy Hoffa (Al Pacino), a trade union leader closely associated with La Cosa Nostra. Frank becomes Jimmy's bodyguard and the two develop a deep friendship over the years, while as "The Irishman" he continues to rise in the favor of the mafiosi and demand his assignments more and more brutality from him.

Le Mans 66 – against any chance
When Henry Ford II, the mighty boss of the Motor Company of the same name, is outmaneuvered in 1963 while trying to buy Ferrari, he tells his team to build a racing car that defeats Scuderia Ferrari at the Le Mans 24 Hours can. Ex-racing professional and engineer Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) should put this into action and picks up for it the idiosyncratic as ingenious driver Ken Miles (Christian Bale) to the side. At Ford, one has concerns about Miles – which is based on reciprocity – and especially appointed the head of the Ford racing team Leo Beebe maintains from now on a heartfelt aversion to the rebellious racing car driver. But Shelby sticks to Miles – which ends in 1966 in a legendary fight Ford against Ferrari on the slopes in Le Mans.
