When Calvin finds Ruby (Zoe 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.

Steve’s Thoughts: Looks like a cross between Weird Science and Stranger Than Fiction, both films I’m a fan of. Ruby herself (Zoe Kazan) wrote the film and dates Dano in real life – how meta is that!? Regardless, I’m always willing to sit through anything from the team who put Little Miss Sunshine on the screen.
