Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Foxcatcher is a compelling but disturbing psychological crime drama based on real-life events. There's some brief non-sexual nudity during a wrestling weigh-in, and characters are shown abusing drugs (mostly cocaine, but characters also drink and smoke weed). Guns are brandished and fired, and some wrestling matches get very intense. But most disturbing is what's obviously a dysfunctional relationship between two characters; their mind games played are hard to watch, and younger viewers may find their dynamic uncomfortable and upsetting.

Sexual Content

Nonsexual nudity during a wrestling weigh-in scene.

Violence

Wrestling is at the heart of the story, and it's all about vanquishing your opponent physically. A few bouts get quite physical, teetering on the brink of an actual fight. A menacing atmosphere prevails at Foxcatcher. A man brandishes a gun during practice, foreshadowing a tragedy. A gun is fired at a practice range. A man hits himself out of anger; it's disturbing to watch.

Language

Very little salty language.

Social Behavior

Even the toughest and cruelest adversity brings life lessons. You should always let someone know how much you love them, because it's important that they know where they stand. And money can't buy you happiness or loyalty.

Consumerism

The Olympic wrestling team and the DuPont family brand feature prominently. A character eats a Nestle Crunch bar.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A man has a very obvious problem with cocaine. He's shown snorting it and teaching someone else to do so. Plenty of drinking (beer, shots). Another character is shown smoking weed via a bong.
