Entertainment Reviews:

Box Office - 03/17/2011
3 stars out of 5 -- "A dark, daft and didactic little dramedy....A narrow and cleanly shot production that transcends its modest scale with star power..."
Rolling Stone - 05/12/2011
3 stars out of 4 -- "THE BEAVER is a potent provocation about the bruises inflicted from just being human. Foster's film and Gibson's grieving performance bring that point forcefully and feelingly home."
Chicago Sun-Times - 05/04/2011
"[H]ere is another of Mel Gibson's fine performances, a reminder that he is after all a superb actor
Entertainment Weekly - 05/20/2011
"Gibson fully conveys the suicidal depression that ails his aptly named character, Walter Black....This is high-quality work from a professional..." -- Grade: B-
Total Film - 07/01/2011
3 stars out of 5 -- "As a director, Foster's hallmark is restraint....Foster's film is stocked with unique, warm-hearted virtues."
Movieline - 05/05/2011
"[A] movie with real nerve endings, something we don't usually see on the mainstream movie landscape: Its subject isn't just midlife ennui, but true suffering."

Product Description:

A successful businessman and loving father finds a unique means of coping with his debilitating mental illness in this drama from director Jodie Foster. When Walter Black (Mel Gibson) finds himself stuck in a downward spiral, the chance discovery of a beat-up beaver hand puppet offers him a unique opportunity to pull himself back from the brink. By using The Beaver to speak with others, Walter develops the abilities to express the suppressed feelings that were slowly eating him away from the inside.
