Film: Ruby Sparks

Ruby Sparks is a charming indie film about Calvin (Paul Dano) a shy, self-absorbed writer suffering from a writer block. Calvins therapist set him a task, “to writer something bad”. So he begins to write about a girl in his dream and falls in love with the character (his dream girl) his writing about and who then somehow becomes real? It might sound dull, but believe me, it is not!.

Ruby sparks directed by the husband-and-wife team Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (Little Miss Sunshine – that already gives you an idea what to expect in this film. However, in its own way, the film is very charming, romantic, funny and with some seriousness. The love between Calvin and Ruby is so undeniably pure and honest and really fun to watch.

The film has a great style, great shots and I love the soundtrack too. Ruby sparks oozes with tenderness, and vulnerability. The film is bursting of energy one moment and suddenly it comes to dark and quite serious moments. It’s impetuous, superbly written by Zoe Karzan, who dazzles with talent and style. So, did Ruby spark in the film? I say, she certainly did and I think you would love here too. Watch the trailer below.:
