Watching Theology: Lars and the Real Girl

Lars and the Real Girl
Watching Theology

Nothing says caring like a close community of Christian believers, compassionate co-workers and a life-like “love doll.” Lars and the Real Girl is the story of a lonely man who becomes so gripped by the contrary forces of fear and love that he suffers from the delusion of believing that an internet-ordered mannequin is a girl friend. And in this insanity, he finds that there is no shortage of love – real love – in his life.

On this episode we spend some time with Lars, his family, his co-workers and his church to talk about the need to love and the cost of it all. Is fear a protector or destroyer of the human heart? Is love safe?
