About the Movie

While most fathers spend their days at work, Cam (Mark Ruffalo) is more likely to be found working on one of his many half-completed projects. As he recovers from a manic breakdown, his wife Maggie (Zoe Saldana) enters an out-of-state graduate school program in the hopes of building a better life for her family. Cam agrees to become the primary caregiver for his spirited young daughters and quickly finds himself in over his head. Based on a true story, Infinitely Polar Bear is a touching and entertaining portrait of the many unexpected ways in which parents and children save each other.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The movie offers a situation more than a story. In fact, if it were less sincere, less honest and less tasteful, it could form the basis of a situation comedy. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 25, 2015

Fresh: 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. – Peter Keough, Boston Globe, Jul 2, 2015

Fresh: Tarpits of treacle and swamps of sentiment seem to await anyone reckless enough to drive such a vehicle as far as a script meeting. Yet it's largely true. And it rings that way. – John Anderson, Newsday, Jul 2, 2015

Fresh: 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. – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times, Jun 25, 2015

meh

i really wanted to like this. i love Mark Ruffalo. and he’s good in the movie, as he always is. i just didn’t like the movie very much. the gaps were jarring, it dragged in spots, and there was no real storyline. the kids were cute, though.

Perfect

if I could give this film 10 stars I would. I saw this film on a small screen on a noisy flight with scratchy audio from 3 rows back and it kept me riveted. The narrative of a family broken by mental illness, destitution and struggle was neither depressing or boringly saccharine, but funny, familiar and engaging, thanks to brilliant performances by the artists and a surprisingly realistic script. The film shirks no social controversy, including mental sickness, inheritance issues and race. With a creative and moving soundtrack to boot you don't need to read another review or description. Watch this film and be wonderfully rewarded with a standard of moviemaking that this artistic form should always strive to be: perfect.

Well Worth Watching!

I am such a fan of Mark Ruffalo which is initially what prompted me to watch this movie. However, I was quickly drawn in and impressed by how well such a daunting, sad disease was portrayed. Ruffalo's performance was never maudlin, yet he gave glimpses of the achingly deep despair suffered as a result of this sickness. Zoe Zaldane did an amazing job as the beset wife who was struggling to take on the necessary role of breadwinner of the family, thus ceding her place as the parent who was always there. Both daughters were unique in the way they presented themselves in a quirky mixture of vulnerability and strength. Having said all this, my best indicator of how well I liked the movie is this-----I would sit down right now and watch it again..
