Foxcatcher tells the story of Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz, as he tries to find a way to remove himself from the shadow of his brother, and a life of financial ruin. When he is summoned by eccentric multi-millionaire John du Pont to move onto his estate and train for the ‘88 Olympics, Mark gets his chance. Desperate to gain the respect of his disapproving mother, du Pont begins “coaching” a world-class athletic team and, in the process, lures Mark into dangerous habits and driving him into a self-destructive spiral. Based on true events, it tells the story of fragile men who pinned their hopes for love and redemption on a desperate obsession for greatness.
