Wow, I don’t know what I was expecting from this film but it really suprised me. Lars is a socially awkward young man who lives in his brother’s garage. He doesn’t enjoy spending time with people and has a real problem with being touched. Lars finds out about real dolls and orders Bianca. I won’t go through the whole story but this film is by turns suprising, heartbreaking and very funny. Ryan Gosling is a really gifted actor and makes you understand how Lars has come to this point in his life. I’d recommend this film wholeheartedly. It’s not the usual fare but I really enjoyed it.
