The Director & Cast of 'Foxcatcher' Talk Bringing the True, Dark Tale to the Big Screen

Publish date:

Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher tells the true and strange story of John du Pont (played by Steve Carell), a billionaire who recruited two brothers to try and mold them into champion Olympic wrestlers. It's a tale that ends in murder and, yet, has a streak of very dark humor throughout it.

At a screening at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, Gavin Smith spoke to Miller as well as cast members Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Vanessa Redgrave, Sienna Miller, and Anthony Michael Hall about the buzzy film.

Says Miller, "It was one of these things, the more you look at it the more it speaks to you, and all of the themes within it: class, wealth, entitlement. All of these things getting concentrated into what is essentially a compelling very small story."
