Jodie Foster Comes Out, The beaver marks the return of Jodie Foster to the director’s chair, 15 years after her last film, A Home for the Holidays. While both films tell a story of family, of Beaver explores depression and its effects not only in grief person, but to all those who love them. Plagued by his own demons, Walter Black (Mel Gibson) has gone from being a successful executive toy to a man suffering from depression so much that can no longer communicate with his wife (Jodie Foster) and two children. Walter seems unable to get back on track, until he comes across a beaver puppet used to connect to the world again. At the same time, the biggest of her son Porter (Anton Yelchin) is so afraid that he will end up like his father that the documents to the smallest detail to ensure that it is not the same way.
On the day of the release film, the actress and director Jodie Foster spoke about why he wanted to Mel Gibson for the role of Walter Black, the choice of the puppet on the right and finding your voice, the challenge of acting in a movie direct work, balance and motherhood, the appeal to play a role in forthcoming film Elisha Neill Blomkamp, and hope she finds the address of another concert soon. Check out what he had to say after the jump:
“The Beaver”, long overdue for Jodie Foster, director of the third period output survives obvious parallels life imitating art. The result is a dramatic comedy with curiosity absorption, although sometimes disturbing, delivery of goods.
The reason for this lies in the ability unmatched quality of its star, Mel Gibson and, frankly, that allows a hand puppet to make the most of the conversation.
The tabloid fiasco that is Gibson’s personal life and now infamous audio tapes between him and ex-lover came only as Oksana Grigorieva final re-release of “The Beaver” is ending. It is virtually impossible to see on the screen now without repeating in our minds their own disastrous implosion time.
Luckily for him his character, Walter Black, adopts a beaver hand puppet as an alternate personality. Except for a few short lines, Gibson completely speaks through this puppet in a British accent.
Along with two-time Oscar winner Gibson, “The Beaver” also showcases the work of two Oscar-winning parenting time, directed and co-stars as Meredith, the long suffering wife of Gibson. The film is the intense story, full of emotions of a man trying desperately to reach agreement with their lives and repair broken ties between him and his wife and children.
Walter, chief executive of a toy company, once successful, suffers from suicidal tendencies and depression, and chronic. The film begins with him trying to many ways to commit suicide. Cannot even get that right.
Meredith kicks him out of the house she shares with two of his children, adolescents Porter (Anton Yelchin) and grade son Henry (Riley Thomas Stewart).
After finding a beaver puppet in the trash, Walter embarks on a strange sort of self-help therapy to try to escape their depression. Just talking through the puppet he calls “The Beaver”, who suddenly is able to cope with the stresses of work and family life. Not only cope, but also thrive.
He relives his waving toy company and rebuilds relations with Merwdith and their children.
But without the beaver, Walter retreats back into depression. As the film progresses, the relationship between Walter and his puppet was made stronger and more intense. Strangely, Walter seems to relinquish control to the puppet, which can be threatening.
Throughout her career as a director (“Little Man Tate” and “Home for the Holidays”), Foster has shown he can hit a nerve when it comes to exploring family dynamics, echoing her films with the public.
