The world is getting The Beaver, whether they like it or not!
The Jodie Foster-directed drama, which stars Mel Gibson as a troubled man who finds comfort talking to the world through a talking puppet, will make its debut in the SXSW Film Conference on Wednesday, March 16th!
SXSW producer Janet Pierson says:
“Each of these films really showcases an artist stretching his or her wings in some way, whether it be a late-night talk show host taking his act on the road, an actress-filmmaker carefully and beautifully tackling a heartbreaking subject in her finest work yet, or a successful photographer trying out a new medium in a new landscape.”
It hits theaters everywhere else April 8th.
We'll be VERY curious to see how it's received at the festival!
And even MORE curious to see if Mel himself is present for the screening!
What do U think?? Are U excited for The Beaver??
