Seeing a way out of living in his brother’s shadow, Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) accepts an invitation to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at eccentric millionaire John du Pont’s (Steve Carell) family estate, Foxcatcher. Based on true events, director Bennet Miller (Capote, Moneyball) tells a fascinating story of the Schultz brothers, led to both triumph and tragedy by the tightly wound du Pont.
Foxcatcher is a thrilling true-crime story, expertly told, that won Bennet Miller the Best Director award at Cannes 2014. Featuring outstanding performances from its ensemble cast, Foxcatcher has also earned three Golden Globe nominations, for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Mark Ruffalo), and Best Actor (Steve Carell). Carell’s total transformation into the socially stunted and psychopathic John du Pont, ceremonial ‘coach’ to the competitive Schultz brothers, is a career-high performance gathering widespread critical acclaim.
“A superbly modulated study of a twisted mind with a career-changing performance by Steve Carell.” – Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
