(Australia, 2008, 92 min., color and b/w)

Narrated by Australian performer Barry Humphries (the incomparable Dame Edna), this clay animation film brings to life an unlikely pen pal relationship between a 44-year-old obese, Jewish man with Asperger's syndrome in New York City, and an odd, chubby 8-year-old girl in Melbourne nursing a crush on her Boy George-loving, cake-decorating neighbor.

Eccles Theatre, Park City
