It's a brain. Mom said yours was broken

The Beaver (2011)
Chosen by me as I like to go to the cinema a lot.

An odd movie that maybe was not served best well by it's marketing (it's not even close to being a comedy) or it's stars recent behaviour.
I admire it for being so unrelentingly serious about it's subject matter though it's approach to curing Depression is at times twee and ends up being yet another Hollywood 'daddy issue' tale (the desire to treat depression 'fairly' but still have an arc with a pat resolution pulls the film in different directions).
It's well played and made but still not exactly good.
