Mary and Max

I don't have to say much about Mary and Max as the trailer says it all for me.  It's a claymation film in which young, lonely Mary in Australia randomly picks equally lonely, 44-year-old, Aspergian Max out of a New York phone book and sends him a letter.  They continue this correspondence for 20 years and discuss a multitude of topics, including "friendship, autism, taxidermy, psychiatry, alcoholism, where babies come from, obesity, kleptomania, sexual difference, trust, copulating dogs, religious difference, agoraphobia."

I forgot to mention that Philip Seymour Hoffman provides the voice of Max, and I do like the Philip Seymour Hoffman.  The clay-fashioned characters look so stinking cool, too.  I can't wait to get my hands on this.
