DVD & Blu-ray review: Ruby Sparks (15)
Friday 08 February 2013
Charlie Kaufman and Woody Allen are clear influences for this tale of an uptight, blocked novelist (Paul Dano), who after having vivid dreams about his ideal woman, Ruby Sparks (Zoe Kazan), sees his fantasy creation become flesh in his opulent LA pad.
Controlling Calvin quickly embraces his perky, artistic new companion, realising that he can manipulate her moods by just writing about her. Ruby Sparks, scripted by Kazan, is frequently funny and rather poignant.
