The Solution Secures International Rights To Infinitely
Polar Bear Starring Mark Ruffalo & Zoe Saldana
MarkRuffalo - Infinitely Polarbear
 
On the slate of The Solution Entertainment Group is the international rights to Emmy-Award nominated writer Maya Forbes' directorial debut Infinitely Polar Bear starring Oscar nominee Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

The Solution Entertainment Group's founders and partners, Lisa Wilson and Myles Nestel commented: "Infinitely Polar Bear is an exceptional directorial debut from writer Maya Forbes and features knock out performances from Ruffalo and Saldana. Audiences are going to love this film and we look forward to showing it to international buyers here at EFM."

The year is 1978, and the Stuart family is struggling to hold it together. Cameron, a bipolar father (Ruffalo), has had a nervous breakdown that leaves him unemployable, and Maggie, a hardworking mother (Saldana), can't quite make ends meet. When Maggie decides to accept a scholarship to pursue her MBA in New York, she must leave her daughters, Faith and Amelia, in Boston with their now-somewhat-convalesced father. So begins an untamed, unpredictable, 18-month experiment as eccentric, exuberant Cameron takes over primary parenting of his precocious, sensitive little girls.

The film is produced by Emmy-winning Wally Wolodarsky along with Paper Street Films' Benji Kohn and Bingo Gubelmann and Park Pictures' Sam Bisbee and Galt Niederhoffer. "We couldn't be prouder of what Maya, Mark, Zoe, and the Infinitely Polar Bear team have achieved. The Solution is known for their commitment to supporting only the best films and filmmakers, which is why we are thrilled to have Lisa and Myles on board to introduce our film to international buyers," said Benji Kohn.

Maya Forbes previously co-wrote the screenplays for Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, Monsters vs Aliens, The Rocker and Seeing Other People.

The film is executive produced by Bad Robot's J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk, Paper Street Films' Austin Stark, Soaring Flight Productions' Ruth Mutch and Park Pictures' Jackie Kelman Bisbee.

ICM Partners is handling US rights.
