A sex doll & the delusional.

Lars and the Real Girl, Movie
In this comedy, Lars Lindstrom is an awkwardly shy young man in a small northern town who finally brings home the girl of his dreams to his brother and sister-in-law's home. The only problem is that she's not real - she's a sex doll Lars ordered off the Internet. But sex is not what Lars has in mind, but rather a deep, meaningful relationship. His sister-in-law is worried for him, his brother thinks he's nuts, but eventually the entire town goes along with his delusion in support of this sweet natured boy that they've always loved. -iMdb 
The gist of this movie sounds a bit ridiculous & silly, but this film is surprisingly deep & filled with emotion, sprinkled with light taps of humor here & there. Amazing performances! Ryan Gosling is one of my favorite actors & he doesn't disappoint in this movie. Grab a tissue...

HI! tomorrow I'm going for an exhibition about sex dolls, their owners and it seems very intresting. I never knew they excisted until three hours ago. "This exhibition is about the phenomena of high-end silicone sex dolls, which fulfill men’s needs more than as a masturbation tool. They are called love dolls and are used in various different ways by users, such as a fashion mannequin, a model for photography and also a life companion today.

It is based oninterviews with the doll owners in three different countries-inside their dollhouses- to understand how the fashion of possession of imagined women is spread as a collective.
The users perform as a creator who brings life into the inanimate silicone dolls trough materiality of fashion such as dressing up the doll’s body with garments and cosmetics. The love dolls are given the identity in this way and they take the life on their own. They indeed become “real” to the users and these virtual women allow the owners to present themselves as a father, a lover, a husband or whomever they want to be in order to socialize with others."
