Finding Abe’s tortured, artistic personality and exotic past irresistible, Jill tries to make their relationship a romantic one, but he rebuffs her.

Based on a true story, Infinitely Polar Bear is a funny and heartbreaking portrait of the many unexpected ways in which parents and children save each other. Cam Stuart (Mark Ruffalo), who struggles with manic depression, spends his days mushroom-hunting, cooking elaborate meals or working on one of his many half-completed projects. When Cam has a manic breakdown that lands him in a mental hospital, his wife Maggie (Zoe Saldana) and their two young daughters are forced to leave their house in the country and move into a cramped apartment in Cambridge. Broke, stressed and overwhelmed, Maggie applies to business school and is accepted to Columbia University’s MBA program—leaving Cam the primary caregiver for the girls while she completes her degree. But the two spirited girls are not interested in making things easy for him. With Maggie away in New York, Cam quickly realizes that he’s in over his head. Over the course of the next 18 months, as Maggie rushes to complete her degree, he learns, through trial and a lot of error, how to take care of his precocious daughters as well as himself.

OPENS FRIDAY, AUGUST 21ST

The End of the Tour tells the story of the five-day interview between novelist and Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg) and acclaimed novelist David Foster Wallace (Jason Segel), which took place right after the 1996 publication of Wallace’s groundbreaking epic novel, Infinite Jest. As the days go on, a tenuous yet intense relationship seems to develop between journalist and subject. The two men bob and weave around each other, sharing laughs and also possibly revealing hidden frailties—but it’s never clear how truthful they are being with each other. Ironically, the interview was never published, and five days of audio tapes were packed away in Lipsky’s closet. The film is based on Lipsky’s critically acclaimed memoir about this unforgettable encounter, written following Wallace’s 2008 suicide. Both Segel and Eisenberg reveal great depths of emotion in their performances and the film is directed with humor and tenderness by James Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now), from Pulitzer Prize-winner Donald Margulies’ insightful and heartbreaking screenplay.
