The premise is one you have to ask twice if you heard right. A lonely man orders a blow-up doll and treats her in his delusions as real person. Does take a bit to think about when you first start to see Lars and the real girl. The move was great! We both thought it rates right up there with ONCE, a hidden gem. The move really touches on the human spirit and the the actor who plays Lars is amazing. The movie is a real emotion jerker and the director really does bring out all the emotions that take place in a lonely desolate small town.
