Fear of abandonment and fear of intimacy go hand in hand. Only a highly individualized approach to healing will allow Lars to move past his fear of abandonment and begin to open up to communication. This is a great movie for showing the mechanisms of projection, blame and holding on to grievances. The whole town rallies around to support Lars’ healing process, and every step of the way it is clear that healing and release is his own decision.
