Why Foxcatcher Has 3 of This Year's Best Performances
Foxcatcher comes out this week, and it's been getting Oscar buzz since its debut at the Cannes Film Festival and, more recently, at Toronto International Film Festival, where we saw the film as well. The movie is directed by Moneyball's Bennett Miller, but unlike that film, which is also based on a true story and set in the world of a certain sport, Foxcatcher is not lighthearted in any way (blame the terrifying true tale). What stands out in the wrestling drama are its performances from the three leads: Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo. Here's what you need to know about their performances, what people are saying, and what their early Oscar chances are.
