“Lars & the Real Girl” – Oct 21st

Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Oct 21st at 4:30 pm for Lars & the Real Girl at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Brian wearing an orange “Life Is Good” hat in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.

Ryan Gosling (Half Nelson) stars in a heartfelt comedy about a loveable introvert named Lars whose emotional baggage has kept him from fully embracing life. After years of solitude, he invites a girl he met on the internet to visit him. When he introduces Bianca to his brother (Paul Schneider) and sister-in-law (Emily Mortimer), they are stunned: Bianca is a life-size doll, not a real person. The family doctor (Patricia Clarkson) explains that this is a delusion he’s created—for what reason she doesn’t yet know but they should all go along with it. What follows is an emotional journey for Lars and the people around him.
