Foxcatcher tells the story of Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Tatum), who sees a way out from the shadow of his more celebrated wrestling brother Dave (Ruffalo) and a life of poverty when he is summoned by eccentric multi-millionaire John du Pont (Carell) to move onto his estate and train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics. 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, breaks his confidence and drives him into a self-destructive spiral.

Tense, well-acted tale of real-life psychological drama.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Foxcatcher is a compelling but disturbing psychological crime drama based on real-life events. There's some brief non-sexual nudity during a wrestling weigh-in, and characters are shown abusing drugs (mostly cocaine, but characters also drink and smoke weed). Guns are brandished and fired, and some wrestling matches get very intense. But most disturbing is what's obviously a dysfunctional relationship between two characters; their mind games played are hard to watch, and younger viewers may find their dynamic uncomfortable and upsetting.
