The film was released in the US over the summer, where it was wonderfully received, and now it comes to our shores in the UK today.
“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.”
Dayton and Faris are directing from a script that the young star, Kazan, has penned, making her feature debut as a writer, with Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development), Annette Bening (American Beauty), Steve Coogan (a.k.a. Alan Partridge), and Antonio Banderas (The Skin I Live In) completing the cast nicely.
Ruby Sparks will be heading into UK theatres today, 12th October, with the DVD/Blu-ray set to be released in the US at the end of the month on 30th October. For now, here’s the new UK TV spot to give you a taste of what we have to look forward to. Enjoy.
