As you know, I am in the final hours (hopefully) of wrapping up my coverage of this year’s Sundance Film Festival. And while my reviews may be almost in the can, the real work of a pundit such as myself is just beginning. You see, I feel that it is my responsibility as your Sundance representative, to keep tabs on the best films to come out of this year’s fest. I will be keeping an eye out for videos, tracking release dates and keeping in touch with filmmakers to ensure that these movies have a chance of getting to you. And one of this year’s movies you should be tracking is Adam Elliot’s Mary and Max, which was coincidentally, the first film I saw at the fest. As I stated in my review, it is the claymation-driven story of two lonely souls, each at different ends of the earth, who share a bond through a lifetime of letter writing. Rarely do I come across a movie so dark and tragic, yet so full of life and undeniably charming.

The film features the voice talents of Philip Seymour Hoffman and Toni Collette. The first trailer for Mary and Max has made its way online, courtesy of our friends at Collider. Check it out for yourself below.
