I saw Mary and Max. I thought it was wonderful, that it didn't get half the acclaim it deserved. Phillip S-H and Toni C are great!

shoes: Pick me up on your way.

Stacy Lynn: I'm not far enough into it to give you an opinion yet. I'll let you know.

Alice: I think we have similar tastes in movies. This isn't the only one we've both liked.
