Monday Night at the Movies: "Foxcatcher"  
Monday, February 8 at 5:30pm
Bring your dinner - we'll supply the popcorn!
The story of how Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz (Tatum) was invited by his multi-millionaire mentor John du Pont (Carell) to live on his estate while he trained for the 1988 Seoul Olympics. However, du Pont's mental instability quickly became apparent, and as he sought more and more to tighten his hold over Mark and have an
active role in not only his training but his personal life as well, the dynamic between the pair turned sour -- an event which would have dire consequences for Mark and his family.
