Still image from the film Infinitely Polar Bear

Infinitely Polar Bear chronicles efforts by a man with bi-polar disorder to manage his illness and be a responsible parent to two young girls. Based in part on the director’s real life experiences, Infinitely Polar Bear documents Cam (Mark Ruffalo) returning home from a halfway house as Maggie (Zoe Saldana) moves to New York City for business school. This film was nominated for a Golden Globe® (Best Actor) as well as awards from the Alliance of Women Film Journalists, Black Reel Awards, Image Awards, and Sundance Film Festival. Critic David Bradley describes it as “very moving ... [with] … great compassion for Cameron, without turning him into some sort of saint or excusing him for his recklessness.” Contains strong language. (2K DCP Presentation)
