Lars 2

 

 

 

When Lars introduces his new girlfriend Bianca, a life-size doll, to his community, everyone accepts her for his sake.

 

This is a wonderful and charming comedy-drama about the power of individual and community goodness, 'a moral fable exploring kindness, understanding, love and the acceptance of human diversity'.
