mary and max,

this time i went to the video store, 
the trusty blockbuster in fortitude valley

and borrowed the charming 92-minute, animated film, 
Mary and Max.


ok. this film was rated PG, 
it dealt with issues like friendship, life, death, suicide, disease, neglect,  loneliness, depression, anxiety...

the film (based on a true story), follows the friendship between two very different people;
mary daisy dinkle, and chubby lonely eight year old girl living in the suburbs of melbourne and max jerry horovitz, a forty-four year old, obese, jewish man with aspergers syndrome living in the chaos of new york.

it's a sweet film, pretty dark, but the overtones of humor lift the mood.
i liked it.

the cast includes toni collette, eric bana and phillip seymour hoffman,
pretty good if you ask me :)

go and see it,
deffs worth it
