‘Ruby Sparks’

by Kaori Shoji

Directors: Jonathan Dayton, Valerie Faris

Language: English

A geek (Paul Dano) whose idea of a dream girl is a gorgeous, adorable creature wearing his shirt (and nothing else) in the morning and who wakes him up with fresh coffee to say winsomely: “Are you mad at me?” gets to live the dream. Yeah, OK. But get this: Zoe Kazan stars and wrote the screenplay, and she’s brilliant and sparkly and favors purple nights. Need I say more?
