Mary and Max
Toni Collette, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Barry Humphries, Eric Bana / Animation / English
A work of stop-motion genius: witty, moving and utterly idiosyncratic.
This film is not suitable for children.
Screening with Horn Dog - Bill Plympton | USA | 2009 | 6 min
From the dazzling imagination of Adam Elliot – an Oscar®- winner for the short Harvie Krumpet (EIFF 2003) – comes a dark but lovable tale of friendship against all odds. Australian schoolgirl Mary inadvertently becomes penpal to Max, a middle-aged, obese New Yorker with a unique mindset. Mismatched as they are, their connection endures… A work of stunning visual and narrative invention.
