Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana star in Maya Forbes’ directoral debut “Infinitely Polar Bear” as a broke couple in the late 1970s who must make ends meet to provide for their family. The Solution Entertainment Group has picked up the international rights for the film right before its premiere in the U.S Dramatic section of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. ICM Partners will handle the U.S. rights.
Ruffalo stars as Cameron Stuart, a father who is recently laid off after suffering a nervous breakdown, a consequence of his bipolar disorder. His overworked wife Maggie, played by Saldana, decides to leave their two daughters in the care of Cameron after she gets a scholarship for an MBA program in New York.
