Lars and the Real Girl (2007)

Lars and the Real Girl (2007)

A poignant film about kindness, emotional process and healing. It has fascinating layers about idolatry, intimacy and community. I immediately wanted to watch it again. It illustrates a phrase that my wife and I have developed to explain what we believe is true about many of us: Most people have emotional time bombs in our hearts, usually from our youth, that don't go off until we are adults physically; and signify the need to grow further as adults emotionally.

It's hard to call this a comedy though I laughed out loud often. It's lifelike in it's mixture of mirth and tragedy. I will treasure this movie for the duration.

My Rating: Own It
