Lars and the Real Girl Review

Lars and the Real Girl

I became interested of this movie after watching the trailer. The storyline is bizarre, to some extent a bit freaky, but I guess these are the exact qualities that drew me to this movie. “A delusional young guy strikes up an unconventional relationship with a doll he finds on the Internet.” Now, wouldn’t you be curious about this movie? After watching it on DVD, it turns out to be a gem. Ryan Gosling delivered a powerful performance. His acting as the deluded young man is convincing, humane and at times funny. I specially love the ending of this movie, it lifts your spirit up and it makes your day seem sunnier.

Besides the good actings of the casts, and the unconventional plot, this movie also carries certain depth and some positive messages. To name a few, it makes you think about compassion, love, understanding and acceptance. Even today, I think we can still have more of these qualities among out communities. Furthermore, it makes you think about inter-personal relationships and intimacy, how often we view these things with pain and fear, and how we can overcome these feelings or perhaps help other to overcome them. So, if you haven’t seen it, rent it and watch it!
