Lars and the Real Girl (2007): review: 9.5/10

In a small town in Ontario, a socialy reclusive man develops a relationship with a plastic doll.

The comical elements, which fold around how the community of the Lutheran town collude with his fantasy, lead to psychological insights.

The film is elegant and moving, with excellent performances throughout.

Was the author influenced by Kafka's short stories, perhaps?
