One of my local SnB grrls (blogfree Val) recommended a movie called “Lars and the Real Girl” to me a couple of weeks ago. We watched it the other night (rented from Netflix), and really enjoyed it.
We laughed. We cried. We laughed some more.
It’s silly, sweet, funny, and poignant. And there’s knitting.
The writing is great, and the casting and performances are perfect. Ryan Gosling was wonderful as Lars, and I always love seeing Patricia Clarkson.
And despite what it might sound like from the plot, it’s really quite innocent. Rated PG.
