An upcoming indie dramedy directed by married co-helmers Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris of Little Miss Sunshine, based off a script from actress/writer Zoe Kazan and starring herself and her actor boyfriend Paul Dano. Annette Bening, Antonio Banderas, Steve Coogan, Elliott Gould, Chris Messina, and Deborah Ann Woll also star in the film.
Calvin (Dano) 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 (Kazan), 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.
