With an outrageous premise, Lars and the Real Girl is about a sweet-hearted
man and the community that supports him. Ryan Gosling gives a dazzling performance as Lars Lindstrom, an extremely shy young man living in a small
Midwestern town where everyone has affection for him. He purchases a sex
doll online and proceeds to introduce her to his brother and sister-in-law as his girlfriend. Despite the concerns of his friends and relatives, a local doctor notes that since Lars otherwise has a highly functional personality that threatens no one, this delusion is a sign that he is working through some personal issues and his loved ones should play along in the meantime.
