First things first: This claymation movie is NOT for kids. That out of the way, I related to both Max and Mary a lot (even though I'm a dude and much older than Mary, sue me, haha). Hope no one had too much of a problem with the age difference of their friendship since I think, deep down, most of us are just looking for a little connection with a kindred spirit in this world. We're all only human and flawed, after all, but I think mostly good hearted and just trying to do our best, as I said. Loved the quote right at the end, something like: "God gave us our relatives. Thank God we can choose our friends." So damn true. Anyway, so if anyone out there (of all ages) has ever felt different from the herd, ever felt lost, alienated, or like they don't belong in this world, I'd definitely recommend this movie to you, my fellow misfit and kindred spirit :) If you agree with my review at all, you can mostly find me these days at twitter dot com/ShyLivesMatter Peace :)
I didn't know what to expect. I had never heard of this movie before. What a lucky surprise!
Embracing being an outsider
I was so moved by this claymation film, at the movie's end I was overwhelmed for a few seconds.
"God gave us relatives. Thank God we can choose our friends."
What a gem.
