Here’s a look at the poster for Sony Pictures Classics’ Infinitely Polar Bear, starring Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana.

Written and directed by Maya Forbes, the film opens in NY and La on June 19th and expands nationally in the following weeks.

1978.

While most fathers spend their days at work, Cam Stuart (Mark Ruffalo) is more likely to be found mushroom-hunting, cooking elaborate meals, or working on one of his many half completed projects. His family’s wealth keeps his family just barely afloat, while Cam struggles to live with manic depression. When Cam has a manic breakdown that lands him in a mental hospital, his wife Maggie (Zoe Saldana) and their two young daughters, Amelia and Faith, are forced to leave their house in the country and move into a cramped apartment in Cambridge, where Maggie tries to find a decent job, with no luck.

Back to Star Wars, then, and Abrams admitted in the interview that "the level of scrutiny is pretty much unprecedented »

Mark Ruffalo And Zoe Saldana Star In New Trailer For Infinitely Polar Bear

20 February 2015 2:20 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Icon Films has launched the first trailer for family drama, Infinitely Polar Bear. Directed by Maya Forbes, the movie centers on a depressive father figure who struggles to overcome his disease for the sake of his family. Its madcap title aside, the film battles with a heavy subject matter that’s carefully presented in this initial preview.

Starring Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana as husband and wife, their troubles commence when she heads off to business school leaving him in charge of their family homestead; in particular, their ‘spirited’ daughters. The decision to unite these two Marvel alums appears to have been a wise move, as each has been awarded a great deal of critical praise for their performances since the movie debuted over a year ago at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Since then, it bagged distribution from Sony Pictures Classics, who will release the movie later this year.

Watch: Mark Ruffalo is a Manic Depressive Dad in 'Infinitely Polar Bear' Trailer

20 February 2015 11:12 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

"Infinitely Polar Bear," written and directed by Maya Forbes, tells the story of Cam (Mark Ruffalo), a manic depressive father of two girls. The film's trailer shows Cam scrambling to care for his children after his wife (Zoe Saldana) decides to go away to business school.  Cam's two precocious daughters struggle to teach their dad how to be responsible and deal with his mental illness without ruining their lives, yet he is completely overwhelmed by simple chores like doing the dishes. "I think if you could stop drinking, and take your Lithium, then Mommy would let you come home," Cam's daughter tells him practically.  The story was inspired by the filmmaker's own father. "I wanted to show that a person's not defined by their mental illness, that's just a part of them," Forbes said at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, to The Independent.  "Infinitely Polar Bear" is set for release in the U. »
