The 5 Most Important Things to Know About Foxcatcher


h1 September 23rd, 2014

foxcatchermain

Since first premiering at the Cannes Film Festival, Foxcatcher, the biographical film about Olympic wrestling champion Mark Schultz, his brother David, and paranoid schizophrenic John du Pont, has been getting a lot of buzz in large part due to chilling performances from the film’s three leading men (Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, and Steve Carell). And now that it’s making the rounds at film festivals — it has since debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival and will screen at the New York Film Festival starting Oct. 10 — Foxcatcher is all anyone’s going to be talking about from now until the 87th Academy Awards in February.

With that in mind, we break down the film to its essential talking points so you can get up to speed ahead of its theatrical release on Nov. 14.

Prepare to see Channing Tatum and Steve Carell like you’ve never seen them before

One sure way to get media buzzing is by undergoing a physical transformation on screen. Foxcatcher delivers on this twofold. First, Carell is barely recognizable under aging makeup, bald cap, and an enlarged nose that, at times, makes him look like Felonious Gru, the super villain he voiced in Despicable Me. Tatum is all muscle, cauliflower ears, and over-sized clenched bottom jaw as the Olympic wrestling champion. His performance is driven by the physical nature of the role and you can see the pain exerted on his body from what was a lifetime of training for the real athlete.

Get ready to utter the phrase, “Oscar nominee Channing Tatum”

While there’s no doubt there will be Oscar chatter surrounding the two performances for the quiet Ruffalo and Carell’s disturbing turn as du Pont, Tatum will likely hear his name tossed around among contenders for Best Actor. It’s not a showy role, but as Mark Schultz, Tatum holds the film together with a touchingly somber performance about a man struggling with own quest for glory under the clouded guidance of du Pont’s care.

This is not a sports film though it the best one about the world of freestyle wrestling

FOXCATCHER

It’s easy to look at this film and label it another sports movie that would easily fall in line with lighter fare, such as Remember the Titans or Invincible. However, much like director Bennett Miller‘s 2011 film Moneyball, this is about the larger story. Foxcatcher is about the layered internal conflicts of masculinity and pride. At the core of the film, du Pont is a man who uses money to inflate an almost imaginary world of power and brotherly (or fatherly) love, and prove to his mother that he is a leader among men.

As for the look inside of wrestling — prepare to feel the physical pain Tatum is put through as Schultz. From the rigorous training to the binge eating and subsequent extreme weight loss, it’s hard not to feel exhausted by the sheer amount of torment wrestlers face to compete on an international level.

We Didn’t Care About Bruce and Kris Jenner’s Divorce Until We Saw These Amazing Vintage Photos

With so many celebrity couples calling it quits this year, it’s hard to find the energy to care that Bruce and Kris Jenner officially filed for divorce. That is, until we remember how glorious they look in ridiculous outfits together.

Because breakups are hard enough to deal with, we try not to get too emotionally invested just to save ourselves future tears. But Bruce and Kris had something special! They had style, they had flair, they had a gaggle of photogenic children willing to have their lives taped for monetary gain and notoriety. And before the reality cameras, they were pioneers of denim-on-denim. (Sorry, Britney and Justin. They did it first.)

Considering the couple has spent time together since announcing their separation in October 2013 — including trips to Thailand, Paris, and Florence for major family events — we shouldn’t see this as a threat to the future of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Bruce is just going to search for someone who will love him for his ponytail, while Kris can go back to managing her children and loving her friends. But until then, remember the good times and great laughs these photos provide.
