I thought I was going to watch yet another American tribute to it's own sports heroes, and I guess that's kind of the case, but it's way more than that. The part of the movie that pays tribute is actually very hard to find.
No the story is centered around the relationsship between Mark Schultz and his older brother David Schultz, and the slightly unhealthy relations between Mark and his benefactor, the millionair, John du Pont.
Since I'm not a huge fan of "feel bad movies", the eerie and dreadfull truth of the movie isn't what did it for me. No I really enjoyed the acting. Again I'll mention the main charachters...
Mark Schultz, played by Channing Tatum, does a superb job of almost disapearing into himself as the carefull and hesitant Mark Schultz.
If you enjoy a good drama, you'll enjoy this movie!
