Indie Trailer Sunday: Stop-Animated Indie 'Mary and Max'
I'm excited today to feature the newest official trailer (via New York Times) for Adam Elliot's Mary and Max, an incredibly unique and original stop animated film from Australia. You may remember hearing the name before, as this was the Opening Night film at Sundance this year (read my thoughts on it), where it gained a lot of acclaim, but never got picked up. The more I think back to it, the more I remember loving it. Watching this trailer again especially reminds me that it's one of those great indies that you've never seen anything like and probably won't see again. So without further ado, check out the Mary and Max trailer.
Watch the official trailer for Adam Elliot's Mary and Max:
An amusing tale of friendship between two unlikely pen pals: Mary, a lonely, eight-year-old girl living in the suburbs of Melbourne, Aus., and Max, a forty-four-year old, severely obese man living in New York.
Mary and Max is both written and directed by Australian filmmaker Adam Elliot, of a few animated shorts previously including the Oscar winning Harvie Krumpet from 2003. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year as the Opening Night film. It never ended up getting a US distributor, so the Sundance Selects program has decided to start showing it On Demand right now if you'd like to watch this.
