Lars and the Real Girl

I saw a little blip about this movie a while back....I didn't know what to think, but I thought I'd try it out....oh my what a good movie!! I loved how subtle it was, how you had to really watch and listen to understand why this guy has a doll for a girlfriend. I love how it shows a community all come together to help someone they love and care for...I love how it didn't tell you everything and you had to be very observant to pick up the details. I love how convincingly the actors played their parts...even Bianca....the doll!! It was funny and moving.....LOVED IT!!!
I must add a conversation that occured while we were watching it...this is a clean movie....I was surprised but it really was. We were watching it without the little ones but Joe happened to wander in about half way through and wanted to sit on my lap.....after about 5 minutes this was our conversation
Joe: Is that a real girl...because she is not moving a muscle!!!
Me: No she is not real, she is a doll.
Joe: Oh.
about one minute later......
Joe: Does that guy know she's not a real girl?
Me:No...he doesn't.
Joe: How can he not know....she's not moving a muscle.
Me: I don't know how he doesn't know, he just doesn't.
Joe: Oh.
We had a good laugh!!

I have wanted to see this movie but didn't know if it would be any good. I'm excited to see it now! I'll have to let you know what I think.
