Foxcatcher (2014) is an American biographical sports drama film directed by Bennett Miller. The movie stars Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Steve Carell, Vanessa Redgrave, Sienna Miller.
The movie is about the relationship between Olympic Wrestling Champion Mark Schultz and his brother Dave Schultz and how their relationship is impacted by the millionaire John du Pont. The movie belongs to Steve Carell who plays John du Pont and I could not even recognize him till the end and it's a definite Oscar winning role. Steve has brought a lot of reality into the role to play a paranoid-schizophrenic millionaire who is trying to win his mother's approval that he can handle things. It's a sad life he lives amongst all the wealth he has.
The movie is slow and serious and shows what goes into becoming a Wrestling Champion. Dave is played by Mark Ruffalo and like his all roles, he has played it extremely well. He is the main soul of the movie who keeps it together.
Channing Tatum has gone through a lot of hard work to play Mark and learn the tips and tricks to play a Wrestling Champion. He has also changed his style of speaking and accent to match any wrestling athlete. His role will be remembered and he really brought Mark to life with his acting.
The movie will be loved by those who really like games and what goes into making a champion. The movie has the potential to reach Oscars Awards this year. Go and watch the movie for the sheer potential of acting.
Movie is releasing in Ster Kinekor on 2nd Jan 2015. Book your tickets now. More info on twitter and facebook.
