Team Foxcatcher (2016)

Mark and Dave Schultz were brothers and champion wrestlers. They won more Olympic golds than any other American brother pair, and were noted for both winning gold for wrestling at the Olympics in 1984. Twelve years later, Dave was murdered. This documentary features never-before-seen footage of the years that Dave and Mark spent on millionaire “philanthropist” John E Du Pont’s Foxcatcher Farm as part of his private team of wrestlers in the late 80s and early 90s … a gig that would cost Dave his life.
