Ruby Sparks (2012)

Directors: Jonathan Dayton, Valerie Faris
Stars: Paul Dano, Zoe Kazan

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.

I expected that this would be enjoyable. Apparently, it wasn’t, at least for me. The main characters are both unlikeable. Both whiny and all that shit. Calvin doesn’t seem to be genius the way he writes ‘Ruby’. It’s morbid. Maybe it would’ve been better if they just totally removed Ruby out of the scene til the end. (Okay, I just prefer Stranger Than Fiction over this.)

★★✮☆☆
