A Man, his Doll, and a Town with a Big Heart

*
Celluloid dreams

Once in a while a fairy-tale like movie is what the audience needs. Among the current films, Craig Gillespie's Lars and the Real Girl is refreshingly different. Not a box office hit but certainly worth watching. As the story moves along, Bianca, the doll, begins to feel like a human being and you find yourself admiring the good people who gave their support to Lars and Bianca.

Rendition made us feel battered when JHL and I left the theater two weeks ago. Gillespie's film had just the opposite effect. Check it out.
