Storyline

Team Foxcatcher (2016) is a documentary about how John du Pont used his money supposedly to help the USA Olympic Wrestling Team by building expensive training facilities on his home property, called 'Foxcatcher'. Dave Schultz, the USA's most successful wrestler at the time, was among the closest friends of John du Pont, defending him when Du Pont's bizarre activities began to cause concern among those living on the 'Foxcatcher' estate. Eventually, Schultz's loyalty to John du Pont would cost him his life.

Thought provoking and sad
28 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

I have watched this documentary twice now, it is such a fascinating and thought provoking film. There is a great sense of sadness associated with this story and I still think about it now and keep recommending it to everyone that I can! This was a topic that I would not normally watch and this broke that barrier down, a totally unexpected and wonderful discovery.
