Walter Black was once a successful toy executive and family man who now suffers from depression. No matter what he tries, Walter can’t seem to get himself back on track…until a beaver hand puppet enters his life.
Comedy Drama - Despite the comic-sounding premise, this is actually a serious drama
and mostly a one-man showcase for star Mel Gibson. Director Jodie
Foster's on-screen role is fairly limited in comparison. Adult
subject matter, language, and sexual content make the film
inappropriate for children.

Roger EbertFull Review Above Average 'The Beaver' is almost successful, despite the premise of its screenplay, which I was simply unable to accept.
Washington PostFull Review Above Average Despite some missteps, this film stands as a moving portrait of a husband and father who reclaims his will to live with the unlikely help of a hand puppet. And the main reason it's so moving? Mel Gibson.
