Shy Lars Lindstrom (Ryan Gosling) cannot stand to be touched and cannot relate to other human beings. He orders a life-size "Real Doll" that is anatomically correct, names her Bianca, and introduces her to his brother Gus (Paul Schneider) and Gus' wife Karin (Emily Mortimer). Not knowing how to handle Lars' delusions, Karin gets Lars to visit a doctor/psychologist, Dagmar (Patricia Clarkson), who convinces Karin and Gus to sympathize with Lars. They heed her advice, and, before long, the townsfolk join in and accept Bianca. The act of putting aside skepticism actually helps Lars when the community treats Bianca with respect. The film received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay.
