uplifting, beautifully acted

Mark Ruffalo stars in "Infinitely Polar Bear" along with Zoe Saldana, Imogene Wolodarsky, and Ashley Aufderheide, from 2014, directed by first-time director Maya Forbes. Forbes is a very talented woman I hope to be seeing more from as a director - she's already an established writer and producer.

The story takes place in Boston in the late 1970s, where Cam Stuart (Ruffalo) lives with his wife Maggie (Saldana) and their children, Amelia and Faith.

Cam is bipolar and job problems lead him to a nervous breakdown. He is institutionalized and then moved to a halfway house. Though he comes from a wealthy family, the money is in a trust. Maggie has a tough time making ends meet. She decides to get her MBA and wins a scholarship to Columbia.

Cam is doing okay on lithium and is more on an even keel, so Maggie has him move in with the kids while she goes to New York for eighteen months, returning home on weekends. Her plan is to return to Boston after school and get a good job, which has eluded her thus far.

It's a tough adjustment. The place is in disarray, Cam constantly embarrasses his kids for either being too friendly with the neighbors or hanging out with them and their friends, not to mention driving around in a pathetic car.

What a wonderful movie told with such warmth and humor. The acting is wonderful all around. Both Ruffalo and Saldana are totally likable, and the kids are great - not cloying at all. The title comes from the kids misunderstanding the term "bipolar."

Definitely worth viewing - a wonderful film.

Shallow and Irritating

(Flash Review)

Ruffalo plays a bi-polar man who has two young kids with a mother and they battle trying to live as a single family unit. Living at around the poverty line, the mother decides to go to business school to support the family. Deciding to leave Ruffalo in charge of the kids during the week for several months. The director portrays the bi- polar man more as an eccentric and never really enlightens the viewer in depth on what it means to have such a condition. The scenes are overly similar when showing his eccentric interactions with his family and never really build to anything; felt very flat. I was like, OK, there he goes again doing something ridiculous. I guess the plot tension asked the question if he will be able to manage the kids and for how long and will he be able to manage his condition? I also didn't feel any of the characters connected with me as having genuine emotions for each other. This was not enjoyable.
