I really wasn't expecting this one to be nearly this good! It's different and not everyone goes for different, but it's unique and very real in a lot of ways. It somehow manages to pull off being funny, eerie and very dramatic. That alone is a rare accomplishment in film, I think. I would definitely recommend this one to a friend. Personally, I don't care for the implication that depression is inherited (not that it can't be but some people, like myself, can become very depressed even with an otherwise cheery and healthy family.) But, the film was very well done and deserves 5 stars. I didn't think I'd agree with the comment that this was Gibson's best performance, but I do. I was actually very impressed with the heartbreakingly real acting he gives here. I didn't realize he could reveal such depth and intensity of emotion (other than anger or 'craziness.') Also, apparently Gibson is also a natural puppeteer. I've seen 'professional' puppeteers do horribly compared to this. I am very impressed all around.

The Beaver is a character study, mainly of depression in various degrees. Mel Gibson gives an astounding performance as the man who seems to have it all, except the will to live, which he slowly and oddly re-discovers through a beaver puppet. Jodie Foster directs the film with a straightforward style, and on-camera portrays his frustrated and bewildered wife. The script is well-written for the main characters' development as well as the sensitivities of the issues at hand, and there is good acting all around. (Look for another great role by Jennifer Lawrence as the son's love interest.) Though I found the film compelling, mainly for Mel Gibson's performance, I'm not sure this film is for everyone. The direction is responsible and sometimes there's just not that much to cheer about. Blu-ray extras include a brief making-of, deleted scenes and commentary.
