The Beaver


1h 31m 2011

Brief Synopsis

Walter Black is suffering from depression. Walter soon hits bottom, gets drunk and, upon waking up, is introduced to "the Beaver" - a puppet Walter had found in the trash and put on his hand during his drinking binge - who suddenly speaks to him, in a British accent. With the help of the Beaver (a facet of Walter's personality), Walter gets a new lease on life and returns home with dramatic results.
