Foxcatcher is the tragic story of Olympic wrestler David Schultz who was murdered by a mentally deranged philanthropist and wrestling enthusiast who was heir to the du Pont family fortune. The screenplay, which was adapted from his brother Mark’s autobiography, focused too much on Mark’s experiences, and too little on David’s, which limited our understanding and sympathy for a character that we barely got to know (Klaus Ming February 2015).
