4 stars out of 5 -- The supporting cast, especially the bubbly Mortimer, are all excellent...

Lars and the Real Girl not only wimps out but has also, at its heart, a fake doll that may be the least fake thing in it. Full Review
The Spectator
Aug 22, 2018
Rating: 3.5/4 -- Nancy Oliver's sincere, graceful script about working through grief with the help of tolerance and patience deftly avoids introducing artificial drama. And, as Lars, the reliably terrific Ryan Gosling gives a warm, earnest performance. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- Sweet, sad and funny...an entertaining fable about the phenomenon of socially crippled singles. [Blu-ray] Full Review

“Craig Gillespie directed from Nancy Oliver's gentle, searching script....This is a movie about kindness.”
Wall Street Journal

Rating: B- -- While the film pulls a few punches, its off-kilter sweetness is as inoffensive and likable as a tepid cup of cocoa. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Lars And The Real Girl is a film without compare, about as far removed from conventional comedy as it's possible to be. Full Review

Product Description:

As the title character, Ryan Gosling is a strange but likeable young man who manages to keep down a job but keeps mostly to himself. He only leaves the garage where he lives when his older brother Gus (Paul Schneider) and loving sister-in-law Karin (Emily Mortimer) drag him to their house next door for dinner. Lars doesn't take well to questioning, so the disturbing level of his isolation is never openly discussed. It's only when he announces he has a girlfriend in the form of an anatomically correct doll he purchased via the Internet that everyone must admit his precarious mental state. No one quite knows how to help Lars, so they play along, careful not to do anything that might push him or Bianca (his plastic fiancée) over the edge. The results are touching efforts on the part of all those who love him to help Lars through what his psychologist (Patricia Clarkson) assures them may be only a stage. Kelli Garner shines as Margo, the real, live girl who Lars seems incapable of seeing. Despite being ignored, Margo hangs in there, hopeful Lars will come around to sanity and to her.

Craig Gillespie's LARS AND THE REAL GIRL is a sweet love story and a film which deals with mental illness in surprisingly subtle ways. With a formula that could easily have manipulated for cheap laughs, the film achieves quirky humor in parts but mostly touching observations about the nature of delusions themselves. The film's talented cast gathers around Lars, a sensitive character who the film respects and who Gosling (THE NOTEBOOK, HALF NELSON) brings fully to life.

Description by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment:

Sometimes you find love where you'd least expect it. Just ask Lars (Academy Award-Nominee* Ryan Gosling), a sweet but quirky guy who thinks he's found the girl of his dreams in a life-sized doll named Bianca. Lars is completely content with his artificial girlfriend, but when he develops feelings for Margo, an attractive co-worker, Lars finds himself lost in a hilariously unique love triangle, hoping to somehow discover the real meaning of true love. Offbeat and endearing, this romantic comedy takes a fresh look at dating and relationships and dares to ask the question: What's so wrong with being happy'
