This is one of those dramas where everybody pulls out their best acting chops and in this case, it paid off. Channing Tatum plays a solemn Olympic wrestler, who’s solicited to train with eccentric, rich John du Pont (Steve Carell). Mark Ruffalo is the older brother, whose relationship is crucial. Carell not only appended the giant schnoz to transform his look, he also assumed a halting, dark demeanor that’s both compelling and creepy. Ruffalo turns in an expected involving performance and Tatum jumped to a new level with his physical and emotional transformation: touchingly tough and sweet. The story moves at a deliberate pace and could get tedious if it weren’t for the riveting performances and astounding story (which is based on fact).
