I watched Lars and the Real Girl tonight and was very pleasantly surprised. It didn’t get very good reviews, so I decided to wait for the DVD.
Aside from being funny, sweet, tender, charming, and full of love, it confirmed my suspicion that Ryan Gosling is my favorite actor.
Back in January, I found this quote from Ryan Gosling, about the reading the script:
“I cried at the end, when I read it. I just thought it was so romantic – the idea that you don’t need to be loved in return in order to love something or someone. Love can come from you. It doesn’t have to be reciprocal. People love their cars. People love all kinds of things, and they really love them. And we don’t really value that kind of love because it’s not a real, reciprocal kind of love, but it’s real love to them.”
