Foxcatcher

2014, USA, 133 MINS, 14A

Dir: Bennet Miller
Starring: Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Steve Carrell

Foxcatcher is a dramatised version of the lurid real-life murder of champion wrestler Dave Schultz at the hands of the late John E du Pont in 1996. It exerts a mesmerising pull, not only because it affords the chance to witness three fine actors working at the height of their powers, but also because it steadfastly resists the urge to clutter up empty space with the filigree of gratuitous imagery and chatter.Carell’s portrayal represents a breakthrough for someone more associated with comedy and winsome drama. But what makes the film so spellbinding is its ensemble, anchored by Ruffalo and Tatum. The latter’s acting combines graceful, full-body physical performance with interior dynamics of fine-tuned sensitivity.

The Theory of Everything

2014, UK, 123 MINS, PG

Dir: James Marsh
Starring: Felicity Jones, Tom Prior

Here is a charming, moving and powerfully acted film about the enigma that is Stephen W Hawking, the Cambridge theoretical physicist who survived a form of motor neurone disease (MND) that was expected to kill him by his mid-20s, and became a pioneer of the study of black holes, a bestselling author and the world’s most famous wheelchair user. 

Hawking has MND and two years to live. His girlfriend, Jane, played with fierce, pinched determination and English-rose beauty by Felicity Jones, refuses to give up on him. They marry and have children; the two-year mortality deadline comes and goes. Here the film departs from the norm, showing how Stephen and Jane effectively converted their marriage into something like an open relationship. 

The title refers to Hawking’s quest for an all-encompassing theory of the physical universe, but the pathos of the film is that in ordinary life, not everything can be made to fit and make sense. Compromises must be made; people must muddle through. It is a gentle, tender story of lovers who found friendship during and after their marriage.
