Lars and the Real Girl trailer

You can file this under wacky movies ideas, but I have the feeling this is going to work as the underlying story is really rather tragic. The film is about a delusional young guy who strikes up an unconventional relationship with a doll he finds on the Internet. This could have gone the blow up doll sex farce route, but thankfully it appears to handle the subject matter with tact and restraint.

It is really nice to see Emily Mortimer and Patricia Clarkson again. I have missed those two dependable gals.
This could actually be a nice little showcase for Mortimer (from the trailer) as she hasn't had much chance to express herself since "Lovely and Amazing".
This will also give ole Ryan Gosling yet another chance to wow us all with his considerable talent. Still not sure about him in "The Lovely Bones" but then again Peter has yet to stear me wrong.

you're right about this film not looking like the'll be interesting to see how it's perceived...

the subject matter is certainly too bizarre to get me in a theater chair opening weekend.
