Release: Feb. 9th, 2009
Runtime: 1 hour, 32 minutes
A tale of friendship between two unlikely pen pals: Mary, a lonely, eight-year-old girl living in the suburbs of Melbourne, and Max, a forty-four-year old, severely obese man living in New York. In the mid-1970s, a homely, friendless Australian girl of 8 picks a name out of a Manhattan phone book and writes to him; she includes a chocolate bar. He writes back, with chocolate. Thus begins a 20-year correspondence. Will the two ever meet face to face?

From beginning to end, [i]Mary and Max[/i] is a strangely charming and utterly beguiling film..
Anyways, I think the movie spans maybe 10-15 years through the lives of Mary (a young girl who lives in Australia) and Max (an obsese atheist with Asperger's who lives in New York).
