Parenting and mental illness collide in the upcoming dramedy “Infinitely Polar Bear,” a very personal story for the film’s writer/director Maya Forbes, who based it on her own life. And in addition to nabbing two strong actors for the movie, with Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana leading the story about a manic depressive man trying to raise his children and maintain his relationship with his wife, Forbes has also put together a soundtrack to match the moods and emotions conjured in her film. And one call she made was to her sister China Forbes, frontperson for Pink Martini. -Read the full story at IndieWIRE
