A scene from the stop-motion film Mary and Max.

Given the ubiquity of computer animated films these days, anomalies like Mary and Max are rare treats. An Australian stop-motion animated film written and directed by first timer Adam Elliot, the movie manages an impressive feat, presenting a visually stunning and a touching story of two outsiders.

Mary is a socially awkward eight-year-old girl growing up in Australia in the 1970s with her pet rooster, taxidermy-enthusiast father and her Sherrie-pickled mother. One day she randomly writes a letter to Max, voiced by Phillip Seymour Hoffman, an equally socially-troubled man in his 40s living in New York. An over-eater with Asperger’s Syndrome, Max has lived his entire life never having had a real friend.

The two quickly bond over their shared feelings of inadequacy and love of chocolate and forge a deep and meaningful friendship as pen-pals throughout Mary’s teenaged years and into adulthood.
