film recommendation #2

Thursday, 13 January 2011


I came across this film in one of my many roamings of imdb and decided it had to be watched. It follows the lonely life of Lars Lindstrom, played by Ryan Gosling, who orders a sex doll off the internet. He sees her as the love of his life though, and the whole town end up treating her like any other person. The combination of innocence, romance and family, as well as a perceived mental illness, make for an insightful story that melts your heart.

  11. I loved Lars and The Real Girl, it's brilliant - I found it quite strange to watch though as elements of it are so funny but you don't know if it's supposed to be funny, and then other bits it's really sad! I need to watch it again actually as I think I would enjoy it even more a second time round.xx
