Lars and the Real Girl

Dir: Craig Gillespie



106 mins


After an excellent lead performance in Half Nelson, Ryan Gosling turns his talent to portraying Lars, a quiet young man whose friends and family find his self-imposed isolation disturbing until the day he takes matters into his own hands, finding himself the perfect companion.

Bianca is a stunning, half-Brazilian, half-Danish religious missionary. However, Bianca isn’t a real girl, but a lifelike doll that Lars has come to believe is talking to him and is his soul mate.

Encouraged by a local psychologist, his concerned family and friends decide to embrace the situation, supporting Lars in hopes of gradually easing him into a life more ordinary.

A meditation on loss, family ties, and loneliness, Lars and The Real Girl is also heart-warming and laced with humour. Nominated for the Best Original Screenplay Oscar.
