Mary and Max (2009)

Director Adam Elliot presents this stop-motion animated black comedy – drama film with endearing characters, shedding light on the complexities and loneliness that engulfs mental health.

A wonderful way to reach children, and educate adults, it speaks of a unique long distance friendship which is born out of the lack / neglect of traditional communication and a support network of family and friends.

A powerful yet melancholy exchange ensues, making you think of issues and themes far deeper than the surface.

An insightful watch.

3/5
