Calvin is a young novelist who achieved phenomenal success early in his career but is now struggling with his writing – as well as his romantic life. Finally, he makes a breakthrough and creates a character named Ruby who inspires him. When Calvin finds Ruby, in the flesh, sitting on his couch about a week later, he is completely flabbergasted that his words have turned into a living, breathing person. From the directors of LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE, this film features Paul Dano, one of the best young actors working today, alongside the talented Zoe Kazan (who also wrote the film). Antonio Banderas, Annette Bening, and Steve Coogan round out the supporting cast.
