A lovingly crafted and startlingly inventive piece of animation.
Mary and Max uses a Claymation technique popularised by Aardman in their Wallace and Gromit films, to tell the story of an unlikely friendship between long-distance pen pals: unloved 8-year-old Mary in Australia and Max, a middle-ages New Yorker with Asperger's Syndrome. Voiced by the brilliant Toni Colette and Philip Seymour Hoffman, and directed by the Academy Award-winning animator Adam Elliot, Mary and Max won 7 film festival awards in 2009-10 for animation and screenplay.
