Mary Dinkle, a chubby lonely eight year old girl living in the suburbs of Melbourne, and Max Horovitz, a 44 year old, severely obese, Jewish man with Aspeger's Syndrome living in the chaos of New York, strike up an extrodinary bond.
Spanning twenty years and two continents, Mary and Max's friendship survives much more than the average diet of life's ups and downs. Their story is innocent but not naive and takes you on a journey exploring friendship, autism, taxidermy, psychiatry, alcoholism, where babies come from, obesity, kleptomania, sexual difference, trust, copulating dogs, religious difference, agoraphobia and much much more.

I had this film recommended and passed over to me without ever having heard of it before. It is a touching story about two lonely people with completely different backgrounds who live on the opposite sides of the world who become pen pals completely out of chance and become the best of friends. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who is looking for a lovely, funny and heart warming story which deals with, strife, family, adversary, loneliness and above all, friendship. A brilliant film.
"I know love upsets you so I won't go on about it. All I wanna say is that love is obviously not for me".
This movie is a touching tale between Mary, an 11 yr old girl in Australia and Max, a 40-something recluse in New York.
Mary writes to Max one day, out of the blue to ask him to be her pen friend. Over decades, they exchange letters and various forms of chocolate, never meeting. They survive marriage and divorce, lottery winnings and countless pet fish.
Mary's home life is nothing to write home about. Her mother loves cooking sherry and cricket and her father spends more time stuffing cotton up the bums of dead birds than he does with his family.
Max is alone with only his cat, endless parade of goldfish and an invisible friend.
Together, they learn about love, true friendship, each other and themselves. “Sometimes those who find the world impossible find each other”
Voiced by the talents of Philip Seymour Hoffman, Toni Collette, Barry Humphries and Eric Bana, it's a touching and heartbreaking story of two people who becomes friends in a very unconventional way.
