Ruby Sparks (Zoe Kazan)
Starring: Paul Dano, Zoe Kazan, Chris Messina, Annette Bening, Antonio Banderas, Steve Coogan, Elliott Gould, Alia Shawkat
Why I loved this film: To begin with, I had read a similar story called "The Girl on Paper" by Guillaume Musso; however, this remains pretty original, or at least there are not many similar movies out there, which is a real breath of fresh air.
It mostly follows that saying "be careful what you wish for", since it might come true and you may be over your head with something you are not sure about. Everything in this story is amazing, funny, witty - although it is not a real 'work of art', it made me laugh and think about what really matters in life, but mostly about fate. Even when you think everything seems lost and things will not get better, fate will find a way, making you think... Is it all my imagination?
But the most important lesson here is that you cannot control life - only your dreams - so leave for the present, do not worry about the future and never stop dreaming!
