MARY & MAX, www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgRjB8PEDkM

TUESDAY, November 18, 8:15 pm University Hall 1070

Adam Elliot / Australia / 80 minutes / Narrative

MARY & MAX is a claymated feature film from the creators of the Academy Award-winning short animation HARVIE KRUMPET.  A tale of pen-friendship between two very different people; Mary Dinkle, a chubby lonely eight year-old girl living in the suburbs of Melbourne Australia and Max Horovitz, a 44 year-old obese, Jewish man with Asperger’s Syndrome living in the chaos of New York.  Spanning 20 years and two continents, Mary and Max’s friendship survives much more than the average diet of life’s ups and downs.  Like Harvie Krumpet, MARY & MAX is innocent but not naïve, as it takes us on a journey that explores friendship, autism, taxidermy, psychiatry, alcoholism, where babies come from, obesity, kleptomania, sexual difference, trust, copulating dogs, religious difference, agoraphobia and much, much more.
