Dir: Bennett Miller | USA | 2014 | 134 mins
Cast | Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Vanessa Redgrave

Steve Carell (Little Miss Sunshine, The 40-Year-Old Virgin) plays it straight – and gives a simply brilliant performance – in Bennett Miller’s (Capote, Moneyball) wonderfully dark film dramatising the true story of Olympic Wrestling Champion Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum), who sees a way out from the shadow of his famous brother Dave (Mark Ruffalo) when he’s summoned by eccentric multi-millionaire coach, John du Pont (Carell). Desperate to gain respect, du Pont begins coaching a world-class athletic team, but in the process drives Mark into a self-destructive spiral. With outstanding turns from Tatum and Ruffalo as well as Carell, it’s an insightful, resonant study of a twisted American dream.

“A superb tragicomedy” ***** Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
“A smoke-black parable of modern America” ***** Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
