Overview
From the directors of Little Miss Sunshine comes a "charming and delightful" (Marshall Fine, The Huffington Post) romantic comedy starring Paul Dano and writer-actress Zoe Kazan. Struggling with writer's block and a lackluster love life, once-famous novelist Calvin (Dano) creates a beautiful fictitious character named Ruby (Kazan) who inspires him. But not only does this bring his work to life — it also brings Ruby to life — literally! Face-to-face with an actual relationship with his once-virtual girlfriend, Calvin must now decide whether to pen this love story or let it write itself. Also starring Annette Bening, Antonio Banderas and Elliott Gould, Ruby Sparks is "a delightful romantic comedy that tugs at the heartstrings and rings of an instant classic." (Katie Walsh, The Playlist on IndieWire)
