A young, struggling author begins to fall in love with the woman he’s writing about and then, one day, she manifests herself in his apartment. Is she real? Where did she come from? Is their love something that can endure? These are the questions central to Ruby Sparks, a new film by the directors of Little Miss Sunshine, Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris.
