Working as a struggling novelist isn't as romantic or glamorous as it sounds — unless maybe you're Paul Dano's Calvin in Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris' Ruby Sparks. The actor plays a young writer who is grappling with his latest work — and his love life — but the literary world's wunderkind finds new inspiration when the woman of his dreams (his newest character) seems to magically appear… in his apartment. Calvin becomes smitten with Ruby (Zoe Kazan, who also co-wrote the movie) on the page, but standing before him, he's madly in love and totally flabbergasted. Elliott Gould, Chris Messina, Antonio Banderas, Annette Bening, and Deborah Ann Woll also star in the mind-bending romantic comedy that hits theaters on July 25.
