This racing adventure follows hotshot race car driver Cole Trickle (Tom Cruise) who transitions to NASCAR racing under the reluctant tutelage of Crew Chief Harry Hogge (Robert Duvall). Cole races through the adrenaline-fueled world of NASCAR as he battles his own demons and falls for Dr. Claire Lewicki (Nicole Kidman). Directed by Tony Scott (Top Gun) the film is full of exhilarating racing sequences that capture the intensity, speed and danger of the sport. It is also known for energetic performances by its cast as well as electrifying chemistry between Cruise and Kidman, who met on set and would later marry (and divorce). Buckle up, get ready for some high-speed action and intense competition in this thrilling racing genre classic. — Keri Moe
