(Winner of the Cannes Film Festival Best Director Award/Bennett Miller; Nominated for 5 Academy Awards: Best Actor/Steve Carrell; Best Supporting Actor/Mark Ruffalo; Director) In a rare dramatic role, Steve Carell portrays eccentric millionaire John du Pont, whose dream is to train a wrestling team at his sprawling Pennsylvania estate, Foxcatcher. Du Pont recruits Olympic gold medalists Mark (Channing Tatum) and Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo) as cornerstones of the team, but long-term tensions between the brothers—and du Pont's increasingly paranoid behavior—will sideline the venture, leading to tragedy. Based on a true story, this 2014 film made the year-end top ten lists of the New York Times, Washington Post, and the BBC.
