Max is a refreshingly accurate embodiment of Asperger’s syndrome.

Mary and Max is a full-length claymation movie that has won many awards. Its humanity and attention to detail will astound and delight you.

Max, one of the main characters, is an Aspie. To date there have been few authentic dramatic renderings of Asperger sufferers.

This film is a wonderful exception.

It’s ironic that such a resonating portrayal should occur in stop motion animation, but it does.

You’ll laugh and nod as you see symptom after familiar symptom covered with accuracy, compassion and humour.

And at the end, you’ll very probably cry. Another irony, given that the characters aren’t even human. Or maybe that’s just the point!

Anyway, do yourself a favour and check it out!
