The Idea: Nominated for 5 Academy Awards 2015 – including Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Director – Foxcatcher tells the dark and fascinating true events of the unlikely and ultimately tragic relationship between an eccentric multi-millionaire and two champion wrestlers. When Olympic Gold Medal winning wrestler Mark Schultz is invited by wealthy heir John du Pont to move on to the du Pont estate and help form a team to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at his new state-of-the-art training facility, Schultz jumps at the opportunity, hoping to focus on his training and finally step out of the shadow of his revered brother, Dave. Driven by hidden needs, du Pont sees backing Schultz’s bid for Gold and the chance to “coach” a world-class wrestling team as an opportunity to gain the elusive respect of his peers and, more importantly, his disapproving mother. Fueled by du Pont’s increasing paranoia and alienation from the brothers, the trio is propelled towards a tragedy no one could have foreseen.
We’re Crazy About:
- All the cast is good specially Tatum and Ruffalo. They are outstanding. From the way they walked or fighting, and how strong the connection between them was totally awesome.
- The movie told us how hard to be an athlete after the competition.
We’re confuse About:
- The story line is sucks, very very slow.
- Too many details so it will make you boring.
The Whole Point: It was outstanding movie, it’s brilliant and inspiring. But you must face this, the movie was slow and too many details. it’s back to personal taste, so if you want to see Tatum in a different way, go for this movie. He’s totally stunning in here, and also don’t forget Ruffalo and Vanessa Redgrave. They are also hot!
