Paperman

I love animation, and this one is beautiful.

(It does live inside one of my less favorite trope spaces: "I will destroy my life to pursue the (beautiful) girl I haven't even spoken to" but at least in this one they interact a little and she's not just a picture in a magazine or someone he watches while she's unaware. Seriously, that's not romance, that's stalking.)

Anyway, this is gorgeous and sweet, and absolutely beautifully animated, and the black and white is such a fantastic choice for it. Up for an Oscar too, though I think Flying Lessons from Pixar is this year as well, and that's also really lovely.
