Infinitely Polar Bear

Based on a true story, this movie stars Mark Ruffalo as a father struggling to cope with a bipolar disorder that causes him to be manic depressive. When he suffers a breakdown, it forces some dramatic changes in his family’s living conditions, and his wife (Zoe Saldana) decides to enroll in business school in New York.

That leaves Ruffalo’s character as the primary caregiver for the couple’s two daughters. Infinitely Polar BearĀ is billed as a comedy, and it’s garnered reasonably positive reviews.

The film screens Thursday and Sunday at the RPL Theatre at 7 p.m., and Friday and Sunday at 9:15 p.m. Here’s the trailer
