With one documentary (The Cruise) and three fiction films (Capote, Moneyball, and the new Foxcatcher), Bennett Miller has carved out a unique space in contemporary cinema, and touched on troubled and mysterious pockets of existence that no one else has even glanced at. In his powerful new work, he examines the “super-terrestrial twilight” world (to quote Edith Wharton) of the billionaire du Pont family’s Foxcatcher Farm, and has produced a powerfully physical tragedy that unfolds incrementally, one gesture at a time. Miller will be joining us to discuss his working relationships, his singular approach to filmmaking, and his attraction to American enigmas.
