Synopsis

Two Olympic medal-winning wrestling brothers, Mark (Channing Tatum) and Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo), get involved with the eccentric multi-millionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell). Wrestling fanatic du Pont first approaches Mark, who's busy training for another shot at the Olympics. He forms "Team Foxcatcher" and Mark's involvement entices other high-level athletes to join.

Eventually, Mark's older brother Dave joins as well and moves to the du Pont compound with his young family, but he begins to realize du Pont, who openly bullies and demeans Mark, is showing signs of mental illness.

Based on Mark's Schultz's autobiography of the same name.

  • 4 stars "Freaked me out!...a slow-paced thriller. Great performances by all, especially Tatum. Really well done."
  • 1 star "So tired of Hollywood trashy films. This film is an insult to the Oscar "Best Movie" category. Carrell was wooden. C. Tatum mumbled and sulked throughout the whole fim. Strong suggestion of gay relationship was completely untrue according to real Mark Schultz. Female characters barely alive. Stop going to these films until Hollywood recognizes true genius like "American Sniper" and Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper."
  • 5 stars "Excellent acting, very gripping. What will the character do next? Stark realism. As I watched I realized I had read about the main character in the back pages of the newspaper years ago when this happened. Story does give light to the realism (sometimes destructive) that motivates young men. Somewhat therapeutic for many young men who are confused and want some clarity in their lives about what really matters. Again, excellent script and acting. Recommended, if you are ready for high level drama."
