Movie Review: Lars and the Real Girl

lars-and-the-real-girl

Written by Nancy Oliver.
Directed by Craig Gillespie.
2007.

Small films are great showcases for actors, and Lars and the Real Girl is a small film. It contains no big revelations about the human condition, and its ending isn’t unpredictable, just inevitable. For a movie whose central figure is a sex doll named Bianca, this is a surprisingly subtle testament to good people, and to arguably the greatest of the five sensations — touch.

“Sometimes I get so lonely I forget what day it is, and how to spell my name.” — Dagmar
