Based on true events, Foxcatcher tells the dark and fascinating story of the relationship between an eccentric multi-millionaire and two champion wrestlers.
When wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) is invited by wealthy heir John du Pont (Steve Carell) to move to the family estate and help form a team to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics, Schultz jumps at the opportunity – hoping to focus on his training and finally step out of the shadow of his revered brother, David (Mark Ruffalo). John du Pont wants to back Mark Schultz’s bid for Gold and become a world-class wrestling coach so he can gain the elusive respect of his peers and, more importantly, his disapproving mother (Vanessa Redgrave). Flattered by the attention, Mark comes to see his benefactor as a father figure and grows increasingly dependent on him for approval. Though initially supportive, du Pont’s mercurial personality turns and he begins to lure Mark into an unhealthy lifestyle that threatens to undermine his training. Soon du Pont’s erratic behaviour and cruel psychological game-play begin to erode the athlete’s already shaky self-esteem. Meanwhile du Pont becomes fixated on David, who exudes the confidence both he and Mark lack.
