A young author creates a character based on his dream girl, and gets the surprise of his life when she turns out to be real. Celebrated novelist Calvin (Paul Dano) used to be the darling of the literary scene; now he's wondering if he'll ever actually write another book. His inspiration at an all-time low, Calvin creates Ruby (screenwriter/co-star Zoe Kazan) and the ideas start flowing. A week later, when Ruby shows up in Calvin's apartment completely smitten, the lonely writer begins to fear he's losing his mind. Elliott Gould, Chris Messina, and Annette Bening also star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
"Ruby Sparks" is a curveball delight, the work of a serious-minded joker. Karan carries this film with disarmingly sweet performance. This romantic comedy gets under your skin as it knowingly explores both the writing process and the nature of relationships.
I give it 4 stars. Both fun and fresh.
