There’s plenty out this weekend. In theaters, there’s the Charlie’s Angels reboot (collectively, we say, “Oooh..that’s why Kristen Stewart hosted SNL?”), documentaries, and an interesting Indian drama. Netflix has programs for the whole family, though it’s focus will be on the third season of The Crown.

Ford v. Ferrari stars Matt Damon as Carroll Shelby, an American automotive designer and engineer, and Christian Bale as Ken Miles, a British World War II veteran and a professional race car driver.
