  • 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.

  • Critic Reviews
    "A beguiling romantic fantasy about the creative process and its potential to quite literally take on a life of its own, RUBY SPARKS performs an imaginative high-wire act with finesse and charm."
    Hollywood Reporter

    "[With] fluent, urgent direction by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris....Exuberant and touching and sweet..."
    Wall Street Journal

    3 stars out of 4 -- "The movie's intriguing in its fanciful way..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "[A]n ingenious and delightful variation on the Pygmalion myth....A sleek, beautifully written and acted romantic comedy that glides down to earth in a gently satisfying soft landing."
    New York Times

    4 stars out of 5 -- "This smart and sophisticated romp takes surprising directions as it examines the creative process of writing, the delicate balance of relationships, and the mysteries of men and women."
    Box Office

    "RUBY SPARKS lands like a punch. It's a smart counter-jab to the many movies out there that put forth the myth that the world is full of quirky angels in ballet flats who are just waiting for some morose protagonist to come along in need of their love."
    Movieline

    3 stars out of 4 -- "[With] a sharply witty and poignant script by Zoe Kazan....RUBY SPARKS is honest, deep and true."
    Rolling Stone

    "Once the pieces are in place, Kazans script reveals a deeper game....RUBY SPARKS comments intelligently on how frustrating and unfulfilling it can be when a partner fails to live up to expectations..." -- Grade: B
    A.V. Club

    "[A] gently touching metaphorical drama about the real essence of love..." -- Grade: B+
