what's the story

Six years after the breakout success of Little Miss Sunshine, husband and wife directorial team Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris return with the offbeat romantic comedy Ruby Sparks.

Calvin (Paul Dano) is a struggling novelist who can’t quite find anything he wants to write. Encouraged by his shrink (Elliott Gould) to start creating his dream girl, Calvin’s reality is upended when Ruby (screenwriter and Dano’s off-screen girlfriend Zoe Kazan) suddenly manifests in his apartment, in love with him and precisely as he’s written her. Uplifting, joyfully absurd and also starring Antonio Banderas, Annette Bening and Steve Coogan, Ruby Sparks is a heart-warming comedy about writer’s block, fantasy and the unexpected difficulties of getting exactly what you want.

Art imitates life imitates art in this delightfully offbeat romantic comedy, which ponders if the man or woman of your dreams is exactly that: a fantastical creation. Directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, who collected a mantelpiece of awards for Little Miss Sunshine, Ruby Sparks stars real-life couple Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan as lovebirds magically brought together by unseen forces. They catalyse smouldering screen chemistry, surrounded by a strong ensemble cast including Antonio Banderas and Annette Bening as hippie parents, whose carefree attitude to life and love provides a template of perfection that other characters struggle to emulate.
