Movie Appreciation - Mary and Max
Time & Location
About The Event
BLIA SFYAD presents our Bi-Monthly Movie Appreciation Event!
The movie we will be screening is titled ” Mary and Max”, which is a bittersweet film about loneliness, mental illness, and friendship by any measure.
Mary and Max centres on an unlikely friendship between two people of varying degrees of instability. Mary Daisy Dinkle (Bethany Whitmore and Toni Collette) is an eight-year-old Melbourne girl with a rooster named Ethel, a taste for sweetened condensed milk, and powerful doses of social anxiety and low self-esteem. Max Horowitz (a terrific and unusual performance from Philip Seymour Hoffman) is a 44-year-old, 352-pound New York man with Asperger’s, a lapsed Jewish faith, and an imaginary friend named Mr Ravioli. When Mary picks Max’s name out of a phone book to ask him where babies come from, the pair form a pen-pal relationship that lasts decades.

Venue: 1750 Van Ness Avenue, San Bao Temple
