Lars And The Real Girl

Synopsis: In this comedy, Lars Lindstrom is an awkwardly shy young man in a small northern town who finally brings home the girl of his dreams to his brother and sister-in-law's home. The only problem is that she's not real - she's a sex doll Lars ordered off the Internet. But sex is not what Lars has in mind, but rather a deep, meaningful relationship. His sister-in-law is worried for him, his brother thinks he's nuts, but eventually the entire town goes along with his delusion in support of this sweet natured boy that they've always loved.

So that's a difference.

That's not true.

Okay, you know, yeah sure,

maybe after Mom died, but...

You didn't know them before that, so...

I mean nothing you could have.

I'm just saying...

Karin and I would really like it

if you moved in.

- No, that's okay, thank you.

- The house is half yours.

Yeah, I know. But I'm fine, thanks.

Just putting that there.

- Good night. Sleep tight.

- Good night.

Oh wait. Here are some leftovers for you.

Do you have my blanket?

- Oh yeah, it's on...

- I'll get, I'll get it. Grab these.

Be right back.

It's a beautiful blanket.

- Gus says your mother made it for you.

- Yeah.

When she was pregnant.

Well she must've loved you very much,

like we do.

- Are you mad at me?

- Is he coming?

Here we go.

- Good night.

- Thanks. Good night.


We talked. He's fine.

Six weeks later...

- Hello?

- Hey, Lars. Karin.

They just delivered a huge box for you.

It's in the garage.

- Oh... Okay, thanks.

- Okay, bye.


That's a nice sweater.


Come on in.

That's okay. Can Karin

come to the door?

- Karin.

- Yeah?

Honey, come here, it's Lars.

- Oh... Really?

- Yup.

She is just... doing that several kinda...

It's pregnant women's yoga.

That's good good stuff.

- Hey.

- Hi.

What's up?

I have a visitor.

You have a...?

- Yeah.

- A visitor?

That... it's great.


- And she's not from here.

- She?

Wow. What do you... what do you..

what do you know... did... where...?

Where did you meet this person?

- On the Internet.

- Yeah, everybody's doing that now.

That's great.

She doesn't speak much English though.

It's okay. It's the same...

It's really the same with the guys at work.

It's... not that big a deal.


Yeah, well, ya know, she is in a wheelchair,

so I just don't want you to feel weird about it.
