Sometimes perfect strangers make the best friends.
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 living in New York. In the mid-1970's, a homely, friendless Australian girl of 8 picks a name out of a Manhattan phone book and writes to him; she includes a chocolate bar. He writes back, with chocolate. Thus begins a 20-year correspondence. Will the two ever meet face to face?

A very special movie that somehow manages to capture your attention although it is neither overly fun nor intriguing nor especially well made. One cannot describe this movie, one has to watch it to make up one's own mind about it: from me it gets 6 stars because I think a lot of potential was left unused.
