Infinitely Polar BearDVD - 2016
"Mark Ruffalo is so wonderful as a bipolar single dad who raises his two daughters in 1970s Boston that you can almost overlook that Maya Forbes' quasi-autobiographical film is the latest in a long line of dramedies romanticizing mental illness."--New York Post
"Ruffalo does a magnificent job of conveying Cam's charm and undeniable love for his wife and children - as well as the devastating effects of serious, incurable mental illness."--Chicago Sun-Times
"The film boasts two of the best child performances so far this year, and Saldana has never been tougher or more vulnerable. Then there's Ruffalo, who demonstrates again why he may be the best actor of his generation."--Boston Globe
When Cam has a manic breakdown that lands him in a mental hospital, his wife Maggie applies to business school and is accepted. Seeing this as her chance to build a better life for their daughters, Maggie asks Cam to become the primary caregiver for the girls while she completes her degree in New York. After all, routine is what the doctor ordered and the girls miss their dad. Cam agrees, hoping to rebuild his family. But the two spirited girls are not interested in making things easy for him.

Amelia Stuart: [narrating] My father was diagnosed manic depressive in 1967. He'd been going around Cambridge in a fake beard calling himself Jesus John Harvard. When he got better, he started working in public television in Boston. He met my mother there. He walked up and took her picture. On their first date, he took her on a driving tour of New England and told her all about his nervous breakdowns. She didn't care. She said it was a crazy time. Half the people they knew were going bananas. So they got married and they had me... and then my sister. We were happy. I know there is more to it than that. There always is.
