Mel Gibson / Jodie Foster "THE BEAVER"

The Beaver starring Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster opening in theaters this May 6, 2011.  Is an emotional story about a man who experiences major depression who goes on an internal journey to rediscover his family and re-start his life.  He can't seem to get himself on track until a beaver puppet enters his life.

As more and more major films enter the mainstream film industry it can't but help people understand mental illness and chip away at the stigma surrounding it.

His note reads " This person is under the`care of  prescription puppet.  Please, treat him as you normally would.  But address yourself to the puppet" 
Please let us know your thoughts and feelings about this movie and please suggest any other movie dealing with the topic of mental illness.
