Jodie Foster’s “The Beaver” gets “warm reception” in Cannes


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: European audiences saw something in Jodie Foster’s depression drama “The Beaver” that U.S. audiences didn’t bother to find.

The film, which stars Mel Gibson as a fractured corporate executive and father of two who learns to communicate through a beaver puppet he finds in a dumpster, received “a warm reception” following a Tuesday screening in Cannes, according to Reuters, which goes on to add that the film might find “a possible second life in Europe after it flopped with U.S. audiences.”

“Flopped” is a strong, yet accurate, word. The movie expands to more screens this Friday, May 20, but so far only has earned $311,558 according to Box Office Mojo. Ouch.

Given Gibson and Foster’s drawing power overseas, “Beaver” no doubt will do better once it reaches more theater. It can’t do much worse, right?
