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.

Sypnosis:

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.
