SENNA movie

SENNA movie

If you’re a racing fan, you’ve undoubtedly heard of the critically acclaimed biopic on the life of Ayrton Senna da Silva, simply called Senna. American audiences were originally excluded from the film’s release, since the distributors mistakenly believed that few Americans knew anything about the Formula One great or his career.

In April, a deal was stuck to screen the movie on a limited basis in select U.S. cities.  We now know which cities and theaters will get the film, so if you want to see it, you’d best plan accordingly. Each stop on the film’s tour will be a standard ongoing run, though its limited release status will probably ensure that tickets sell out quickly, at least for the initial showings at each location.
