Sometimes you find love where you'd least expect it. Just ask Lars, 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.

I found Lars and the Real Girl refreshing, as it would have been easy to go down the avenue of an outright comedy. Instead the writers have created a tale that concerns a man with mental illness who has withdrawn into himself.
The arrival of the doll allows him to integrate with the daily activities of life and the locals. How this occurs and his ongoing recovery is enchanting, with the odd laugh now and again.
Well worth a rental

This is a great movie with an unusual plot, who could not cringe when the real girl is revealed and who would not want to live in a world where difference is so readly excepted. A great film well worth watching.
