Mary and Max

I just saw the most unusual claymation movie called Mary and Max.

The director and writer of this film is Adam Elliot and one of the things that immediately impressed me about the film was the writing which is articulate and full of poetry. It is the story of a pen pal correspondence between a young Australian girl who suffers from low self-esteem and an obese Jewish man in NY who has Asbergers Disease.  Although the movie deals with difficult subjects such as obesity, depression, alcoholism, death and suicide it manages to infuse the story with humor and compassion for the human condition. Definitely not for kids, though.
