Discussion led by Jane Tillman, Ph.D., ABPP

Lars and the Real Girl humorously combines fantasy, reality, and the healing nature of community. Lars is a young man who is painfully shy, anxious, and struggling to face the reality of the death of his parents. His solution to his internal dilemma is to form a relationship with a life-sized doll he names Bianca. In this film, an insightful community suspends reality, joining Lars on his improbable quest to move from isolation to relatedness.
