Review: ‘Ruby Sparks’


What happens when the imaginary girlfriend you wrote comes to life? Some comedy hijinks, a bit of soul-searching and the new film “Ruby Sparks” which some are calling an update of the Pygmalion myth. I think it’s a nice indie film spin on “Weird Science” only this time it is a struggling 30-year old writer, not two hornball teenagers who created a Pantene model. “Ruby” is the long awaited followup film from Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, the two husband-wife team who cut their teeth on years of cutting edge music videos before they helmed the indie mega-hit “Little Miss Sunshine.” They spent several years working on different interesting projects which never made it to the screen with Tom Perrotta’s book The Abstinence Teacher being the most promising project.
