Despite how you feel about Mel Gibson, you might want to grab a copy of the The Beaver this weekend, according to fellow PsychCentral.com blogger Joseph Burgo, Ph.D., who has posted a review of the film over at Movies & Mental Health.

The Beaver (directed by Jodi Foster, who also co-stars as Gibson’s wife) tells the story of a depressed and suicidal man who begins communicating with a hand puppet (a beaver) in an effort to relieve his depression symptoms.

Burgo’s review of the film claims it tackles the difficult subject of suicidal depression “with psychological insight and emotional honesty.”
