Download Ruby Sparks

While details on the film have been slim, an announcement email from Fox Searchlight sent out today not only reveals the name change and a limited release date (July 25), it also discloses the full synopsis of the film. The film centers on Paul Dano‘s character, a once-successful young author who is felled by some intense writer’s block and a dismal love life. When he starts writing about a new character, Ruby, Calvin’s spark comes back – but everything is thrown into disarray when he discovers Ruby (Kazan) in his apartment.

But, not for the first time, all it takes for a man to be inspired is the right woman, who in this case is Ruby (Kazan), an offbeat redhead with luminous blue eyes Calvin meets in a park. Immediately, the words start to flow again as he works on his Olympic portable. “It’s almost like I’m writing to spend time with her,” he marvels as the pages begin to accumulate. Suddenly, however, she materializes in his apartment, his imaginary muse suddenly flesh and blood before his eyes.

The most conventional scenes, in which Calvin has his brother Harry (Chris Messina) over to convince him that Ruby’s for real, are also among the funniest. It’s Harry who challenges Calvin to write something to see if Ruby follows suit. When, just short of the story’s halfway point, Calvin finally accepts the reality of the power he has over his dream girl, he vows, “I’ll never write about her again.”Further abrupt personality shifts and relationship imbalances follow, but when Kazan seems to have written herself into an inescapable corner, she manages with impressive dexterity to address the manifestly implausible nature of her creation on the way to a resolution that’s sweet and, happily, doesn’t feel like a cheat.While details on the film have been slim, an announcement email from Fox Searchlight sent out today not only reveals the name change and a limited release date (July 25), it also discloses the full synopsis of the film.
