Lars and the Real Girl
- 1 hr 46 min
Lars leads a very secluded life. He lives in his brother's garage, is oblivious to a coworker's attraction to him, has great difficulty socializing and continually rejects his sister-in-law's efforts to include him in the family. His life is sad and lonely and no one seems to be able to reach him. His brother and sister-in-law are therefore overjoyed when Lars announces he has a new girlfriend and asks if they would mind having her come for dinner. The couple quickly become shocked however when they realize the girlfriend is in fact a life-sized doll whom Lars speaks for and apparently understands as if she were a real person. Concerned for Lars, the couple takes him to see a doctor who advises that they play along with Lars' fantasy as it is clearly something he deeply needs. The couple tries and slowly the entire town and community come together in support of Lars.
