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.

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 of RUBY SPARKS.

Co-starring Antonio Banderas, Annette Bening and Steve Coogan and Elliot Gould, RUBY SPARKS is a heart-warming comedy about writer’s block, fantasy and the unexpected difficulties of getting exactly what you want.
