The official word: Two-time Academy Award® winner Jodie Foster (Silence of the Lambs, The Accused) directs and co-stars with two-time Academy Award® winner Mel Gibson (Braveheart - Best Picture and Best Director) in The Beaver, a compelling and original film, slated to arrive on Blu-ray™ and DVD August 23rd from Summit Entertainment.
The Beaver -- which Rolling Stone calls “heartfelt and often painfully funny” – tells the emotional story of a once successful man named Walter Black (Gibson) so plagued by his own demons that he resorts to the use of a beaver hand puppet in order turn his life around and reconnect with his family. Academy Award nominee Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone) and Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) co-star in the film which is both a darkly comic journey of self-discovery and a solemn ode to the strength of family.
The Blu-ray and DVD contain special features that include audio commentary with Foster; deleted scenes; and “Everything is Going to Be O.K.,” a featurette about the making of the film.
The Beaver will be available for $30.49 SRP (on Blu-ray) and $26.99 SRP (DVD).
