Lars and the Real Girl trailer
Here's a trailer that surprised me. As I was watching the comedy with Ryan Gosling, Emily Mortimer, Paul Schneider, Kelli Garner and Patricia Clarkson, I was wondering if something was going to happen and if I was going to start enjoying it, then halfway through something happens and the pathos and the clever injection of humour turned me around.
This isn't a straight out comedy, this film seems to have a degree of intelligence and wit to it that is rather interesting.
I've never heard anything about this film, but before I give you the obligatory blurb, can I suggest you watch the trailer and discover it for yourself?
Done? Okay. How bizarre was that? Lars Lindstrom is an introvert who has really struggled to embrace life full on, until that is he meets someone on the Internet, and invites her to stay with him. Except what surprises everyone else is that she's a life-size doll. After consulting their doctor they find out that this is a delusion that needs to be embraced by everyone until Lars can let it go, and so they do.
I was surprised by how much I liked the latter half of the trailer, and how intelligent the humour is, no slapstick, no bodily function jokes, but clever, observational humour. I really like it.
