USA, 104 mins. Dir. Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris
From the makers of Little Miss Sunshine. 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.
‘A mash up romantic fantasy, meta-fiction and magical realism, Ruby Sparks is proof that good things do come in small packages… Smart, literate and romantic, you’ll find it hard to resist Ms Sparks’ * * * *
‘An absurdly engaging rom-com with an appealing cast.’
‘A smart modern movie… and how often can you say that about a rom-com?’ * * * *
