So tonight I went and saw Lars and the Real Girl, a twee American film set in some desolate snow-covered wasteland.
It's all about this guy Lars who, in response to something, buys an anatomically correct girl doll and treats it like a girlfriend.
Sure, it all sounds a little independent film-angsty, but in actual fact it's a really good movie.
The characters are likeable without all being unexpectedly good looking, the plot goes along a fairly predictable but still enjoyable path and the humour is goodnatured and genuinely funny, a rarity in anything these days (it's usually one or the other but never both).
If you visit your local cinema fortress while it's on show I suggest you go see it. If you live in a country where films are released in the year they're made, then get it on video.
Either way, it's a great movie that features surprisingly little sex or violence, and surprising again that's not to its detriment.
There's also a lot to see for snowlovers, those sickos who like the country and people looking for lessons in USB noosemaking.
