"But thanks to Mr. Beaver, that won't be happening anytime soon,"
Watching 52 Films Directed by Women in 2018: boxd.it/1YOgS ,
Walter Black, a man suffering from severe depression, adopts the use of a Beaver puppet to express his feelings. The film tracks how this choice impacts Walter's life, along with the life of his family which includes his wife and two sons.
This is worth one watch but I just don't think the Beaver is very good. The acting, however, is truly fantastic. In fact the performances by Mel Gibson, Jodi Foster, Jennifer Lawrence and Anton Yelchin are so convincing that I almost didn't notice the subpar script and the fact that Jodi Foster seems to have watched American Beauty too many times before directing this film.
