The Beaver

| August 22, 2011

The Beaver, written by Kyle Killen, was ranked at the top of the Hollywood Black List in 2008 as the best unproduced script in Hollywood. Upon watching the film, you can easily see why.
Filled with raw emotion, smart dialogue, and unique situations, The Beaver brings you to tears and laughter as it unfolds. Walter Black (Mel Gibson) experiences a severe mental breakdown, losing himself and his family until he finds a beaver puppet. With the Beaver, Walter is able to begin to put the pieces of his life back together: rekindling his marriage to his wife, Meredith (Jodie Foster), and being a role model for his children, Porter (Anton Yelchin) and Henry (Riley Thomas Stewart).
Jodie Foster does an amazing job both acting and directing the film. And despite what your personal opinions of Mel Gibson may be, you cannot deny that he does one heck of a job acting in The Beaver.
