Offbeat comedy starring Ryan Gosling as Lars Lindstrom, a painfully shy man who begins a relationship with a life-sized doll named Bianca, treating it as a real live woman. When Lars introduces Bianca to his brother Gus (Paul Schneider) and his sister-in-law Karin (Emily Mortimer), they initially think Lars has lost his mind. However, since Lars finally appears to be emerging from his shell, the family doctor (Patricia Clarkson) encourages Gus and Karin to play along with Lars's delusion. As he begins bringing Bianca with him everywhere he goes, the townspeople must attempt to find the right balance between supporting Lars's unorthodox relationship and trying to make him accept his feelings for his real-life co-worker, Margo (Kelli Garner).
