MARY & MAX
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, and Max Horovitz, a 44 year old, obese, Jewish man with Aspergers Syndrome living in the chaos of New York. Spanning 20 years and 2 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.
See Mary and Max on Monday, February 1st in Lerner Cinema Space at 7pm.
Tickets are available on the 3rd floor of the Kraft Center or at the door. FREE!
