About the Film
Now on Digital HD. From the directors of Little Miss Sunshine comes an engaging and charming 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 an inspired coming of age story that proves true love can be magical.
I'm not normally one to review films but I feel I should for this one, merely to act as a warning. This film is dire, it has a terrible message at its core and awful characterisation. I'm sure it had the potential to be a good film, but it fritters that potential away. Watch it by allk means, but you'll wish you hadn't after.
I love this film
It's quirky. Not a belly laugh comedy. This kind of film rarely meets a large cinema audience but deserves too the it's filled with casual observational humour i don't mind being spelled out. Characters are convincing in the middle of a supernatural event and the ending is gratifying. If you want to take a break from action adventure /queasy horror with huge plot holes of sci-if too smart for it's own good. Then watch this. If liked See also: Sleepwalk With Me or Safety Not Guaranteed
I switched it off half-way through. It was so boring. The main character was good but the female lead 'Ruby' was so dull and annoying. The storyline was promising and I was nearly tempted to continue watchng simply to see how it ended, but I just couldnt bring myself to waste another hour of my life with it. For me, this film was seriously lacking in sparkle. Perhaps with different actors it would have been better to watch.
