Somehow this one slipped past me until now, but now that I've seen the trailer for the upcoming stop-motion picture Mary and Max I'm itchy to see it. The film is the feature directorial debut of Adam Elliot, and it's loosely based on an event from his own life. Mary and Max tells the story of a little Australian girl named Mary (voice of Toni Collette) and her neurotic, overweight, middle-aged New Yorker pen pal Max (Philip Seymour Hoffman, doing a great impression of Mel Brooks as the 2000 Year Old Man) over the span of 20 years.
A big hit at Sundance, the film is now available On Demand but I haven't heard anything yet about a theatrical run.
