FOXCATCHER paints a complex, haunting portrait of America - from the gilded halls of the du Pont estate to the sweat-stained wrestling mats that serve as the stage to win Olympic gold. Their deadly intersection is charted with a deft touch by director Bennett Miller, who explores singular truths in a symphony of delusion. Steve Carell's transformational performance is paired with remarkably real turns by Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo, who bring the film to its feet and prove the power of stories to ask a nation what it is to "win" and to consider the price of the prize.
