[From the Radio Times archive] The highly anticipated film “Foxcatcher” hits theaters in a couple weeks. It depicts the true story of Olympic wrestler Dave Schultz’s murder by John du Pont on his Newtown Square estate outside Philadelphia. The film is directed by BENNETT MILLER and has received rave reviews, particularly for Steve Carell’s portrayal of paranoid millionaire du Pont. Bennett’s previous films, “Capote” and “Moneyball,” have also been critically acclaimed. Miller talks to Marty about “Foxcatcher” and his filmmaking. We’ll also hear from NANCY SCHULTZ, the widow of Dave Schultz. Marty spoke with them earlier this month.
