New in German movie theaters this week is "Ruby Sparks," a smart, thought-provoking romantic comedy written by rising talent Zoe Kazan, who also stars as the titular character.
Inspired by the Pygmalion myth, the film features Paul Dano as a struggling young novelist whose fictional character, Ruby Sparks, comes to life. Beautiful writing and strong performances from Dano, Kazan and the rest of the cast – which includes Annette Bening, Antonio Banderas and Elliott Gould – make "Ruby Sparks" a prime example of romantic comedy at its best.
