Lars and the Real Girl
(USA, 2007, 106 minutes)
A lonely, asocial young man introduces to his family and friends a sex doll he bought over the internet as his girlfriend; the local doctor advises people to accept his delusion as a way to rid him of it. Quirky comedy that doesn't outstay its welcome.
