44 - 12/26/14 - "Mary and Max." Third movie on Bauer movie day. Never thought I'd see a Claymation movie that depicts serious adult themes in a poignant way. A sweet commentary on friendship and mental illness.
Mary and Max (2009) Mary is an 8 year old outcast living in the suburbs of Melbourne. On a whim, she chooses a name at random in a phone book and sends off a letter asking about life on the other side of the world. The letter is received by Max, an overweight depressive in his 40's living in New York, suffering from Asperger's Syndrome.
