Critiquing Film, Television, and More

Quickie: Lars and the Real Girl (2007)

A posse of filmmakers somehow made a romantic drama about a 27-year-old man falling in love with a sex doll work. My condolences.

Lars and the Real Girl at times is a movie that feels a bit transparent and predictable. That being said, there are still at least two fundamental factors that make this film function adequately: 

1) The alluring and notably touching look into an individual overcoming a personality flaw through means of delusion.
2) Ryan Gosling’s convincing performance as a hardcore introvert—which was, yes, exquisite. 

Cute. (Verdict: B)
