Blu-ray Release: Infinitely Polar Bear

January 5, 2016

By John Corrado

Infinitely Polar Bear Blu-rayToday, Sony Pictures Classics is releasing the small gem Infinitely Polar Bear on Blu-ray, after a long run on the festival circuit.  Based on writer-director Maya Forbes own childhood in the 1970s, the film follows Cameron (Mark Ruffalo), a charming but erratic man with bipolar disorder whose wife (Zoe Saldana) goes away to business school, leaving him to raise their daughters (Imogene Wolodarsky and Ashley Aufderheide) mostly on his own.

Netting Mark Ruffalo a Golden Globe nomination for his nuanced and immensely likeable performance, Infinitely Polar Bear is an entertaining and very touching little film that I couldn’t recommend more highly.  Managing to be genuinely funny one moment, and heartbreakingly honest the next, this was one of the best movies of last year.  My full review can be found right here.

The Blu-ray also includes audio commentary with Mark Ruffalo, Maya Forbes and her producer/husband Wally Wolodarsky, as well as a Q&A with the cast and crew from the LA Film Festival.

Infinitely Polar Bear is 88 minutes and rated 14A.
