Ruby Sparks

This rom-com fiction was brilliant executed and a true delight! From their previous film < Little Miss Sunshine>, Director Jonathan Dayton & Valerie Farie co-write this magic and fantasy with emotional punch yet seemingly dark and smart hopeful story. A young novelist Calvin played by Paul Dano ( A weak yet intelligent young author) who achieved phenomenal success early in his career but is now struggling with his writing - as well as his romantic life. Calvin makes a breakthrough and creates a character named Ruby who inspires him and when Calvin finds Ruby (Kazan), in the flesh, sitting on his couch about a week later, he is completely flabbergasted that his words have turned into a living, real breathing person. Gradually, he founded out that he can control Ruby's life by writing the continuous story while it develops. Zoe Kazan and Paul Dano, a couple in real life, play their parts with sparks and real good chemistry. Great supporting casts like Annette Benning and Antonio Bandares did add more life in the movie by portraying a hippie mother and step father. With a story like this being so impossible......it must be true. Just like the tag line.
