About the Movie

Foxcatcher tells the story of Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Tatum), who sees a way out from the shadow of his more celebrated wrestling brother Dave (Ruffalo) and a life of poverty when he is summoned by eccentric multi-millionaire John du Pont (Carell) to move onto his estate and train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Desperate to gain the respect of his disapproving mother, du Pont begins "coaching" a world-class athletic team and, in the process, lures Mark into dangerous habits, breaks his confidence and drives him into a self-destructive spiral.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: [Miller] is equally adept at portraying the peculiarities of wrestling here, and how those physical moves -- beautifully choreographed and executed -- sync with deeper psychological currents. – Jocelyn Noveck, Associated Press, Dec 11, 2015

Fresh: Director Bennett Miller ("Capote," "Moneyball") has a fascinating story here and he knows it. – Tom Long, Detroit News, Dec 19, 2014

Fresh: Carell is immersed in the role, completely convincing. Tatum also is outstanding. – Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, Dec 4, 2014

Fresh: The triumph of Foxcatcher is not in the subject but in its art. The clear-eyed compassion and moral intelligence of Miller's film brings sense to the senseless, and finds the human pulse behind the tabloid shock. – Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail, Nov 28, 2014

Keep an open mind

Just a warning to whoever wants to see this, this movie is painfully slow. I'm not sure if it was purposely done that way to give the movie a more real feel for the audience, I only wish some scenes in the movie should have been cut...short sweet and to the point.The acting for each character in the movie was brilliantly excecuted with the respect for the actual people each individual had to portray. Although subtle, I believe any one of these three actors should be nominated for their performance ( carell for the win of course) and this movie may have to be watched a couple times to be appreciated and even look things that may have been overlooked. All I can say is this is a true story in Pennsylvania , even excecutive produced by mark Shultz himself... A good movie though


It’s so eerie and off-putting, it’s almost like watching a horror movie. The performances, the writing, the directing - everything about this movie is genius. A very atmospheric, slow movie that’s worth it.


This film is absolutely brilliant. Everyone delivers a stunning performance; yet Steve Carrell is the most riveting. This movie shows what athletes do in order to stay or get to the top and shows the sad but historical fate of the Schultz brothers. I highly recommend this film to anyone
