Visit the Wonder: Art and Science on the Brain

Oscar-winning director Adam Elliot’s claymation feature is a whimsically dark yet poignant account of the unlikely, long-term pen-pal friendship that develops between two ‘outsiders’: Mary Dinkle, a chubby, lonely eight-year-old girl in the suburbs of Melbourne, and Max Horovitz, a middle-aged, severely obese, Jewish New Yorker with Asperger’s Syndrome. Featuring the voices of Eric Bana, Toni Colette, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Barry “Dame Edna” Humphries.
