His sister-in-law is worried for him, his brother thinks he's nuts, but eventually the entire town goes along with his delusion in support of this sweet natured boy that they've always loved.To help Ryan Gosling stay in character, the real doll was treated like an actual person, as is done by the characters in the movie.This isn't a film that's laugh out loud funny, a few occasional ones here and there, but I found myself smiling throughout. It created a much stronger reaction than I had anticipated.Gosling had me laughing and nearly brought to tears all at the same time. The film does a great job of questioning normality and the treatment of the mentally ill.He hardly ever has eye contact with any single person in the film.He's given a flower and told to give it to someone nice, but when Margo comes strolling along, he flings the flower into the bushes. Margo likes him and he likes her, but neither are any good at expressing their feelings.The film raises the question about treatment of the mentally ill.Do we really need medication that wipes out their feelings and emotions, or do we just need the basics?
Some of the actions of the characters are questionable- mostly with the way the townspeople treat Lars and his delusions. Lars struggles to connect with people, which is due to years of neglect from his father, and the death of his mother during child birth.
First time I saw some early footage I said that is a young mary in training. But once I saw him on screen he was very sexy - just magnetic.
He might have butched it up but I would bet good money he is gay.has at least been with guys. If you just saw his picture you wouldn't think he's sexy but he is. People are right, it's how he carries himself - he becomes handsome. So DL has one long Ryan Gosling thread with people saying that he's definitely gay, and now a second thread with people saying that he's definitely straight. I think I’m more attracted to Ryan Gosling than any woman could ever be.”-Andrew Garfield to Teen Vogue Mediocre actor at best, he is only good when he can relate to the characters he is playing. Good looking - not really, he looks like a creepy weirdo, very off-putting.
This will be Lars' way of giving all this love that he has to give to someone that won't do anything but accept it.
Someone who isn't concerned with the superficial, and someone who he can connect with.
