The Beaver is a 2011 comedy-drama film directed by Jodie Foster and starring Mel Gibson and Foster.

PlotWalter Black (Gibson) is a depressed toy executive. He is kicked out by his wife (Foster), to the relief of their elder son Porter (Yelchin). Walter moves into a hotel. After unsuccessful suicide attempts, he develops an alternate personality represented by a beaver hand puppet found in the trash, which from then on he always has with him, and through which he communicates with other people. This helps him greatly to recover. First he reestablishes a warm bond with his younger son Henry, then with his wife, and finally with Porter. Also he is successful again in his work.

Porter gets paid for clandestinely writing papers for schoolmates. He also takes on the job of writing the graduation speech of Norah (Jennifer Lawrence). He likes her and is embarrassed by Walter showing up with his beaver puppet. After the speech she admits publicly that she did not write it herself, and explains her trauma caused by her brother's death, some years ago.

Walter's wife moves out of the house with the children, because she hates the beaver, and because he lied that is was part of a treatment monitored by his psychiatrist. Part of Walter's personality wants to get rid of the beaver, to reconcile with his wife. He does this in a dramatic way by cutting off his underarm holding the puppet. He ends up in a psychiatric hospital. Porter, who hated his father and kept track of all similarities to him in order to work on avoiding them, reconciles with him.
