7.6 / 10 (4772)


Extremely shy Lars finds it impossible to make friends or socialize. His brother and sister-in-law worry about him, so when he announces that he has a girlfriend he met on the Internet, they are overjoyed. But Lars’ new lady is a life-size plastic woman.

MUBI's take

A high-concept set-up quickly gives way to a fantastical examination of loneliness in this affecting romance from director Craig Gillespie. Earning an Oscar® nomination for its script, and with a tremendous lead in Ryan Gosling, Lars and the Real Girl is a tender tale about the power of illusion.
