The new movie from the directors of the Oscar winning Little Miss Sunshine.
Calvin (Paul Dano) is a young novelist who achieved phenomenal success early in his career but is now struggling with his writing – as well as his romantic life. Finally, he makes a breakthrough and creates a character named Ruby who inspires him. When Calvin finds Ruby (Zoe Kazan), in the flesh, sitting on his couch about a week later, he is completely flabbergasted that his words have turned into a living, breathing person.
Paul Dano is the lone actor from Little Miss Sunshine to return to Ruby Sparks, the follow-up to Little Miss Sunshine from directors (partners) Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris.
