Lars and the Real Girl

Watched a great movie last night--Lars and the Real Girl--thanks to a recommendation from my sis-in-law. I think what I liked most about the movie was that no person played the antagonist. To be sure, there were things being fought by the protagonist, but it was great to see that every single person in the movie stand next to Lars, and fight with him.

I always feel bad when I miss these shows in the theater. I would have liked to thrown my $7 toward the folks who made the film.

Hmmm, I'm gunna trust you on this one, but the description isn't anything I would have picked up. You better not be leading me astray :-)

Let met know what you think. It's easily the best movie I've seen this year. Granted, it's January, and I've only seen two movies, but still.... :)

My wife loved it as well. She got teary eyed.

Josi, if it makes you feel any better, Aunt Carole recommended it to me.

Matthew, I agree--I wish I'd supported this movie in the theatre. It's one of those little gems that will stay with me forever. Interesting, it never occurred to me that there was no antagonist.
