Foxcatcher
A psychological drama directed by Bennett Miller and starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Vanessa Redgrave, and Sienna Miller. Based on actual events, the film tells the story of Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Tatum), who sees a way out from the shadow of his more celebrated wrestling brother Dave (Ruffalo) when he is invited by eccentric multi-millionaire John du Pont (Carell) to move onto his estate and train. This gripping tale is sure to be an awards season favorite.
Birdman

Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance) is a black comedy that tells the story of an actor (Keaton) - famous for portraying an iconic superhero - as he struggles to mount a Broadway play. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego and attempts to recover everything he's lost.
