Mary and Max
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 44-year-old, severely obese man living in New York. In the mid-1970's, Mary picks a name out of a Manhattan phone book and writes to him attaching a chocolate bar. Max is quite pleased and responds her. Thus begins a 20-year correspondence. Will the two ever meet face to face?
