Based on a true story about director Maya Forbes’ own father, INFINITELY POLAR BEAR is a funny and heartbreaking portrait of a man who suffers from bipolar disorder and a testimony to the many unexpected ways parents and children can save each other.
After a breakdown that forced him to leave his family and move into a halfway house, Cameron (Mark Ruffalo) attempts to rebuild his relationship with his two daughters and win back the trust of his wife Maggie (Zoe Saldana). When she is accepted to business school, Maggie gives Cam a shot and asks him to become the primary caregiver for the girls while she completes her degree. But the girls are not interested in making things easy for him. Realizing that he’s in over his head, he learns, through trial and error, how to take care of his precocious daughters as well as himself. Ruffalo finds his signature role here, deftly easing into the role of the blue-blooded slacker who aches when the world won’t hug him back. A sincere man trying to make good, his story is a generous and redemptive one, lending a rare dignity to Forbes’ affecting film.
