Movie task: Lars and the Real Girl

I am so in love with this movie! I know I usually start these series of posts paraphrasing the same idea, but I’ve been choosing movies I love. I totally empathize with Lars in that I can’t be sociable. I’ve tried, believe me, but I find it too stressful to mingle and have a casual conversation with people I don’t share anything with. As contradictory as it may sound, I am friendly and interested in meeting people, though; I just can’t force being into a conversation I find ... blah. I can’t schmooze for the sake of it.

If you haven’t seen this movie, let me tell you it’s about a delusional man who tries to cope with his depression and loneliness by believing Bianca, a life-sized doll, is alive. I'll say no more, except go ahead and watch it!

So, based on Margo and one of my favorite scenes in the movie (this one), I chose an outfit she would have picked from my wardrobe. She is naive and fun, so I think my sheep dress would totally suit her.

Awe, this scene is so sweet!

Eeeh ... I couldn't help posing like Bianca, haha. And, as well as Lars, I ate her food :p.

Silly, silly post, but very enjoyable movie.

hehe, this movie was great! loved the dryness and totally loved the ending too! i wont give much away for those who havent seen it but my favorite part was when lars took bianca to the christmas party lol :)

as far as the whole communicating, connecting, and mingling with people goes, i get you. im super friendly! and i love meeting people! but most of the time i dont want to even bother with it. and its funny because marc and i were talking about this not too long ago. i told him that i think im socially awkward but he calls me a social butterfly! idk. i probably sound weird but i have a feeling you get what im saying. in my book youre pretty awesome and super friendly :)

I never got around to seeing this movie but after your description I will add it to my to-watch list. I feel exactly the same way as you in social situations. (Makes it so difficult to be a freelancer where it's all about networking)
