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.

Critics Consensus: Infinitely Polar Bear handles its thorny themes with a somewhat troublesomely light touch, but Mark Ruffalo's complex performance keeps the drama solidly grounded.

Heartfelt drama about family affected by mental illness.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Infinitely Polar Bear is an intimate, '70s-set look at a family with a dad who has bipolar disorder. He (and consequently, his two daughters and his estranged wife) goes through wild ups and downs, especially when he's not taking his lithium -- pretty serious subject matter that's too intense for younger kids. There's also a fair bit of swearing, by both kids and adults, including "s--t," "a--hole," and a few uses of "f--k." Characters kiss and make allusions to sex, and there's some behavior that borders on violent (yelling and throwing things) but is attributable to a decline in a character's mental health.
