Synopsis

It's certainly not the most obvious idea for a film: a grown man who only communicates through a beaver hand puppet with a gruff cockney accent. Scratch behind that odd starting point, though, and what emerges is a slightly more traditional story about a middle-aged man who is deeply depressed. His way of coping is to let the beaver say all the things he's too scared or unable to say. His new friend even helps him out in his business. The Beaver is an interesting film made by a talented director with a well-cast star.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
