FOXCATCHER  (R) 
 
-Baxter Avenue Theatres             
Based on true events, Foxcatcher tells the dark and fascinating story of the unlikely and ultimately tragic relationship between an eccentric multi-millionaire and two champion wrestlers. When Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) is invited by wealthy heir John du Pont (Steve Carell) to move on to the du Pont estate and help form a team to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at his new state-of-the-art training facility, Schultz jumps at the opportunity, hoping to focus on his training and finally step out of the shadow of his revered brother, Dave (Mark Ruffalo), also an Olympic Gold Medal winner. Driven by hidden needs, du Pont sees backing Mark's bid for Gold and the chance to "coach" a world-class wrestling team as an opportunity to gain the elusive respect of his peers and, more importantly, his disapproving mother (Vanessa Redgrave). Fueled by du Pont's increasing paranoia and alienation from the brothers, the trio is propelled towards a tragedy no one could have foreseen. Foxcatcher is a rich and moving story of brotherly love, misguided loyalty and the corruption and emotional bankruptcy that can accompany great power and wealth. Academy Award nominee Bennett Miller (Capote, Moneyball) once again explores large themes in society through his complex character portraits of real people. Winner of the Best Director award at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.

In his second outing as director after The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, actor/co-writer Tommy Lee Jones returns to the West with The Homesman. Three women living on the edge of the American frontier are driven mad by harsh pioneer life, and the task of saving them falls to the pious, independent-minded Mary Bee Cuddy (Hilary Swank, Academy Award winner for Million Dollar Baby and Boys Don't Cry). Transporting the women by covered wagon to Iowa, she is desperate for help on the daunting journey, and forces a low-life drifter, George Briggs (Jones), to join her.
