#BoyfriendMaterial #016 – Lars and the Real Girl (2007)
Lars and the Real Girl falls in the heart of a real great run of #BoyfriendMaterial movies, and it’s exactly what the doctor ordered after Blue Valentine. (Not Patricia Clarkson as the doctor, even though she is truly incredible in this movie as Gosling’s unknowing psychiatrist.) Not fully a comedy, not fully a drama, this movie straddles the line between laughter and tears and romance in a way that only a weirdo Ryan Gosling movie can. In this episode, we talk about how this town is the kindest town in history, whether or not this could be a Fight Club situation, and whether or not this movie is a secret prequel to the movie Drive. As always, we recount the movie’s most and least #BoyfriendMaterial moments, but this time with a twist: how good of a boyfriend is Ryan Gosling to a Real Doll?
