About Ruby Sparks
A struggling writer dreams his perfect woman into existence. Calvin (Paul Dano) wrote a successful novel as a teenager, but years later he is suffering from writer's block. His therapist (Elliott Gould) instructs him to write a short piece to get his creativity flowing and Calvin ends up writing about his ideal woman (Zoe Kazan), a quirky redhead he names Ruby. A week later he is shocked to discover a real-life version of her in his house. What's more, he realises that he can alter her attributes and give her outlandish talents simply by writing about them. Calvin confides in his disbelieving brother Harry (Chris Messina) about Ruby's fictional origins and both agree that it is almost a miracle, but Calvin's control over Ruby may not be as absolute as he thinks.
