lars.jpgYes, Lars and the Real Girl is about a man who falls for a sex doll. It's also about the women who help pull him out of his shell – and a lot more. Screenwriter Nancy Oliver (Six Feet Under) talks about the work behind building the real girl.

Oliver discusses her love of Dickens, Balzac, Beckett and Shakespeare; her early career in theater; the "geography of kindness and  compassion" that evolves as the community comes to terms with Lars and Bianca; and the importance of humor in tragedy.
