FOX­CATCHER

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

6.10PM, FOX­TEL PRE­MIERE ★★★★

This eerie drama tells the true story of John du Pont (mas­ter­fully played by Steve Carell), an ec­cen­tric US phi­lan­thropist who in­vested heav­ily in the sport of Olympic wrestling in the 1980s. His mo­tives in build­ing an ex­pen­sive train­ing fa­cil­ity around two medal-win­ning broth­ers (Chan­ning Ta­tum and Mark Ruf­falo) re­main in dis­pute to this day. The tragic out­come, how­ever, speaks for it­self. Di­rec­tor Ben­nett Miller (Capote, Money­ball) re­mains a mas­ter of making proven fact play like un­pre­dictable fic­tion.
