Mary and Max is a simple tale of pen-friendship between two very different people: Mary Dinkle, a chubby, lonely eight-year-old girl living in the suburbs of Melbourne, and Max Horovitz, a 44-year-old, severely obese, Jewish man with Asperger's Syndrome living in the chaos of New York. Spanning twenty years and two continents, Mary and Max's friendship survives much more than the average diet of life's ups and downs.

Loved this quirky claymation sensation! I was fortunate to review it ahead of it's DVD release yesterday in Australia - patriotic bias aside, I can't recommend this film enough.

I caught it yesterday and loved it too! I'm a HUGE fan of animation, so I hope this one catches on over here.

It sucks that movies like Ice Age 3 are more successful than gems like this.
