Mary and Max

13 Oct

Picture from Wikipedia

 

Two nights ago while browsing thru Netflix, I came across this movie Mary and Max.  One of the best claymation films I’ve ever seen.  Dark, yet positive in the most important way. Two strangers help each other grow and combat their own different fears throughout life. Touching, emotional, sweet, cute and sad.  A movie worth watching.

“Mary Dinkle, a chubby 8-year-old Australian girl, and Max Horovitz, an obese, middle-aged New Yorker with Asperger’s syndrome, are a pair of unlikely pen pals in this quirky clay animation feature from writer-director Adam Elliot. Corresponding for two decades, the friends delve into a variety of topics, including sex, kleptomania, psychiatry, taxidermy and more. Toni Collette and Philip Seymour Hoffman provide the voices of Mary and Max.”
