Lars and the Real Girl
The power of compassion and community is portrayed in the film Lars and the Real Girl. A young man suffers with delusion and makes up a girlfriend. Through the gentle actions and words of friends and family he works through his issues. The plot goes a little far at a few points, but the basic concept of love and diligence worked for me in this drama. I wouldn't call this a comedy, but there are some very funny moments. Well written and acted, Ryan Gosling gives another wonderful performance. The whole ensemble makes this film worth seeing.
