" isn't a film about trapping animals, but it is captivating, and in its own way extremely wild. Based on a true story involving Olympic wrestlers, an heir to a great fortune, and a smouldering conflict that soon caught fire, this is a challenging-yet-rewarding film with some impeccable performances.
This is the one with Steve Carell
wearing a funny nose, right?
Yeah, that's the one. It also stars Channing Tatum
and Mark Ruffalo
. In fact, if there's three things to recommend about the film, it's these actors. Performance
-wise the film is incredible, with each actor stretching in ways that put them all at the top of their game.
Carell's quiet sociopathy is riveting, and he portrays John du Pont with an unsettling air that's intoxicating. That snout he wears may be costume affectation, but it gives his face just the right amount of arrogant aloofness to give the film its core tonality.
