'A story spanning twenty years and two continents, Mary and Max tells of a pen-friendship between two very different people. Mary Dinkle, a chubby and lonely eight year old girl living in the suburbs of Melbourne decides on a whim to to pick a person at random from the New York phone book and sends off a letter asking about life on the other side of the world. It is received by Max Horovitz, an obese 44 year old Jewish man with Asperger's Syndrome living in the chaos of New York. A friendship is born as the pair exchange letters over the next 20 years. Offering each other support, advice and the chance to see life through another set of eyes.
'Mary and Max's friendship survives much more than the average diet of life's ups and downs. As with Adam Elliot's previous feature film, the Academy Award-winning Harvey Krumpet(2003), Mary and Max is innocent but not naive, 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, agrophobia and much much more.'
