Did anybody see the movie Ruby Sparks? It’s about a writer whose first book is considered a work of genius and as a result he is paralyzed and can’t write a second book. He is also heartbroken and unable to get his romantic life going again. Enter Ruby: real woman or figment of his imagination? The movie is getting mixed reviews but I really liked it even if Zoe Kazan, the screenwriter actress who stars in it, has five strikes against her: she’s under thirty, she has what my mom calls a lovely figure, she’s the child and grandchild of famous Hollywood screenwriters, she went to Yale, and in real life she dates her hot co-star Paul Dano. Oh, and she’s a really good writer and actress. And I still like her fucking movie.
My favorite movie about a writer is Misery. What’s yours?
