Lars and the Real Girl (Craig GIllespie, 2007)

**½
USA



Small-town introvert Ryan Gosling falls in love with a sex doll, introduces her to the community as Bianca his partner and the community plays along to the point that Bianca gets her hair styled, is invited to do charity work and even has the ambulance at ready disposal. The premise isn't played for cutesy quirk so much as soppy romance. A bunch of talented actors scramble to pitch their performance at some level of honesty, but to little avail. The film's inner reality is so sketchy, it's unlikely that the writer or director ever had a handle on it either.
