Sony Pictures Classics Picks Up Sundance Fave ‘Infinitely Polar Bear,’ Starring Mark Ruffalo

Sony Classics Nabs 'Infinitely Polar bear'

Sony Pictures Classics has snagged all North American, German, UK, Scandinavian, Eastern European and Russian rights to Maya Forbes’ directorial debut ‘Infinitely Polar Bear,’ warmly received at its 2014 Sundance premiere.

Starring Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana and set in the late 1970s, the film centers on an eccentric mess of a father (Ruffalo) as he tries to win back his wife by taking responsibility for their two young daughters. The spirited girls don’t make the overwhelming task any easier.

Variety wrote, “Mark Ruffalo gives one of his most appealing performances in writer-director Maya Forbes’ irresistible feature debut,” and Indiewire calls the film “a forceful and heartfelt debut.”

“Infinitely Polar Bear” is produced by Paper Street Films and Park Pictures Features, in association with Bad Robot and KGB Media. Release date forthcoming.
