NETFLIX Review: The Beaver (2011)

Jodie Foster directs and co-stars with Mel Gibson in The Beaver – an emotional story about a man on a journey to re-discover his family and re-start his life. Plagued by his own demons, Walter Black was once a successful toy executive and family man who now suffers from depression. No matter what he tries, Walter can’t seem to get himself back on track…until a beaver hand puppet enters his life.

Well, I’ve finally seen Jodie Foster’s Beaver. And you know what? It wasn’t as bad as I thought. It’s rather tidy and trim… I though Mel Gibson gave one of his best performances in a long time and Jodie Foster demonstrates some assured direction.

I think the film handles its subject well in the same it did for 50/50, just not as complete as the latter.
