Lars and the Real Girl

“Lars and the Real Girl is a sweet, slightly off-centre comedy following timid Lars Lindstrom (Ryan Gosling), a lovable introvert living in a garage apartment next to his older brother, Gus (Paul Schneider), and sister-in-law Karen (Emily Mortimer).  Lars is sleep-walking through life until a new friend comes to visit.  Bianca is a stunning, half-Brazilian, half-Danish religious missionary.  The trouble is that Bianca isn’t a real girl at all, but an inanimate replacement, a lifeless replica of a woman ordered online from a company called Real Girl.  Everyone knows why a man orders a doll like Bianca, but to Lars, who actually believes she is a living human being, she becomes a source of emotional support.  Taking the advice of the local psychologist (Patricia Clarkson), his family reluctantly agrees to play along with Lars’ delusion, as he begins to deal with his personal problems.”

Stranger Than Fiction

“Everybody knows that your life is a story. But what if a story was your life? Harold Crick is your average IRS agent: monotonous, boring, and repetitive.      One day this all changes when Harold begins to hear a voice inside his head narrating his life. The narration is extraordinarily accurate, and Harold recognizes the voice as an esteemed author he saw on TV. When the narration reveals that he is going to die, Harold must find the author of the story, and ultimately his life, to convince her to change the ending before it’s too late.”
