Lars and the Real Girl

I get to see movies (first run movies, in actual movie theaters) about 3 times a year (not including kids' movies, which don't count), and today I got to see one!

It was really quirky and good!

It's called Lars and the Real Girl, and basically it's the story of a very socially awkward and isolated man, who buys an inflatable "girl" and makes up an entire relationship with her. Not only that, he involves him family and his whole town in the relationship. It's funny, and sad, and quirky, and unbelievable, and good, all at the same time. I really really enjoyed it, and my husband did, too. I highly recommend it!

And I recommend movies in theaters, and eating out afterwards! So nice! (clearly written by a person who doesn't get out nearly enough...)

the over all look and feel of Lars and the Real Girl reminded me a lot of Mozart and the Whale (Josh Hartnett plays a similar character as Ryan Gosling’s)
