Ruby Sparks

Comedy Romance


 

A novelist struggling with writer's block finds romance in a most unusual way: by creating a female character he thinks will love him, then willing her into existence.

"Ruby Sparks" is the girl you always wanted, well, what you think you wanted. This story plays on the idea of the ideal relationship, a tormented writer solving his problems the best way he knows how, by creating a fiction that consequently questions what is real. It's easy to fall in love with the characters of the film, as the central relationship pens the story along in mysterious and unpredictable ways. Dreams can come true... literally.
