Summary
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 only solution is to separate from his wife Meredith (Foster) and their two children Henry (Riley Thomas Stewart) and Porter (Anton Yelchin). Just as the once-prominent toy executive nears rock bottom, however, the chance discovery of a beat-up beaver hand puppet offers him a unique chance 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
