From the writer of '6 Feet Under' (which I never saw) Lars has problems relating to people after an affection starved childhood following the death of his mother in childbirth. As an adult, to cope with his loneliness, Lars invents himself a girlfriend by projecting a personality onto a 'Real Doll' that he orders via the internet and the effect that this has on his family relationships and community.
It really is better than I make it sound, lol!

Lars and the Real Girl
I saw this movie for the first time last night, and had no idea what to expect, but it was funny, sweet, touching and quirky and I would certainly recommend it ^-^!
