Russian term or phrase: мечта Тургенева
Диалог в фильме между двумя парнями. Говорящий волнуется, что его девушка, которая хочет познакомиться с его семьей, бросит его из-за того, что он скрыл от нее факты о своей семье. Как бы вы перевели "мечта Тургенева"? Спасибо.



-Я же ей наплел с три короба про свою идеальную семью.
Папа - ученый, мама - домохозяйка, сестра - мечта Тургенева, пока еще.

На Западе мало кто знает Тургенева. Поэтому лучше дать такой перевод.

a solitary girl


Explanation:
"A solitary person" is one that not only frequently spends time alone but also enjoys being alone. I think this is what best describes "мечта Тургенева".

See references for "Тургеневская девушка" and "Solitary Personality Type".

disagree  Susan Welsh: Your Wiki link is interesting, but "solitary" doesn't fit at all. It has many meanings rather than "enjoys being alone." A person can be solitary and miserable.

  -> I don't say this is the ideal version. But this is what I could suggest based on the psychological characteristics of "Тургеневская девушка" in one word. And the same way the word "miserable" has many meanings rather than "unhappy".
