Mary & Max (12A)

Swindon Film Festival 2011

MARY AND MAX (12A)

Australia - 2009 - English - Claymation/Comedy

Barry Humphries is the narrator of this darkly comic, Australian, claymation-animated feature which charts the 20-year correspondence of two extremely unlikely pen pals.

When their epistolary alliance begins, Mary Dinkle is an eight-year-old girl living in the suburbs of Melbourne with her alcoholic mother and inattentive father, while Max Horowitz is an obese 40-something Jewish New Yorker prone to panic attacks.

The only thing the two have in common is their friendlessness and profound sense of alienation.

Spanning two continents and two decades, their extraordinary friendship helps them both through life's highs and lows as they grapple with the everyday troubles of modern existence.

“…. Elliot's unique film - a perfect marriage of form and content - has charm, curiosity and heart in spades.” (Film4)

Tickets - £4.00

Concessions are also available.

Advance ticket sales are available in person from Swindon’s Visitor Information Centre, by calling the bookings hotline on 01793 466454 or visiting the Swindon Tickets website.

Tickets will probably be available at the venue on the day, but some venues are small, therefore advance booking is recommended.

Please check the Festival website and Facebook pages for the latest news on these events.
