"You Are My Best Friend. You Are My Only Friend."

In the midst of our housekeeping frenzy, I took time to watch Mary and Max. I was definitely skeptical about it. The synopsis read:
A tale of friendship between two unlikely pen pals: Mary, a lonely, eight-year-old girl living in the suburbs of Melbourne, and Max, a forty-four-year old, severely obese man with Asperger's living in New York. The cover art featured on Netflix also creeped me out a little. The verdict? I loved it! It's whimsical and tragically sweet. Their friendship forms over random facts, awkward questions, and chocolate delights of questionable taste. The wit and humor that supports the story is illustrated through the narrator's voice and is undeniably funny.
