I just want to draw everyone's attention to this little animated film, Mary and Max.
You really do need to see it.
Its about two misfits. The first one, Mary is a small, Australian child, who feels she has been disfigured by a birthmark and she has come from a dysfunctional family, who told her she wasn't a planned or wanted baby.
At eight years old, she is very lonely.
Mary decides to choose a name at random from a Manhattan telephone directory and picks out Max, a 40 something man who is grossly overweight and is a solitary figure who also has Asperger's Syndrome.
Obviously when Mary chooses his name from the directory, she doesn't have any idea how old he is or what type of person he is but she just wanted someone to tell her whether it was true that babies were found at the bottom of beer glasses.
She decided to write her first letter.
Neither of these two friendless individuals would have had any idea that their letters would develop into a friendship that would last for twenty years.
I will keep you guessing as to whether these two would ever meet.
If you do watch this film, then have a stack of tissues with you. Or maybe you will find it humorous?
In spite of the emotional impact......I can thoroughly recommend watching it.
