🍿 Lars and the Real Girl · 2007 · ★★★½
After seeing someone talk about this movie on Tumblr I felt like I had to give it a try and what I found it’s certainly not what I was expecting. I would call this a “great movie” but I would not recommend it to everyone because I understand that some viewers might find it too awkward to watch; in fact, there were moments when I even wondered if I could make it until the end, mostly because I didn’t know if I could pity Lars for much longer but I guess what the director was aiming for was to get people to understand a difficult situation.
Lars is an unbelievably kind man that’s always ready to help others and when he falls in love with a doll all his friends gather to help him to deal with it. This is a movie about kindness, sympathy, solidarity and tolerance.
