Now that Mel Gibson has yet again been confirmed as a homophobic, racist, abusive, sexist anti-semite, the fate of his Jodie Foster-directed comedy vehicle The Beaver seems uncertain in the US.
Luckily, we’re not so bothered about such trivial matters over here:
Normally this is where I’d describe the plot of the film, but I could never hope to put it as succintly as the IMDb does:
‘A guy walks around with a puppet of a beaver on his hand and treats it like a living creature.’
Surely that premise is enough to excuse a little bit of (alleged) domestic abuse?
UPDATE: So, apparently, none of this is true.
