The trailer was better. Turns out to be sort of a cliche about how you can't micro-control the people you love without becoming a monster. Duh.

This movie looked great. It was pretty good and definitely worth seeing - but not great.
Acting is solid. The idea is very unique - I was told the actress that plays Ruby is actually the writer of the screenplay. That puts a whole interesting twist on the entire thing. Anyway - good movie - actually a bit dark in parts, but that actually keeps it a little more well rounded and less obvious. Definitely worth the ticket price - especially considering the other junk out right now.

A very sweet film about the fantasy of being able to control love and the reality of loving someone that requires you to set them free.

Original , thought- provoking concept ... Ruby Sparks' extraordinary cast and nuanced performances deftly blend reality with fantasy, and leave the viewer to ponder its meaning long after the credits go black on the screen.

As improbable as the premise of this movie is, I found myself hooked! The story is well written and directed. It gives you enough to follow and enjoy, but leaves you hoping for more as the story unfolds. Great leading actors, supporting cast, and I LOVED and LOL at Annette Benning and Antonio Banderas as hysterical, upscale, pop-smoking, hippies! Truly an enjoyable movie and a welcome find after the very disapointing Moonrise Kingdom and Beast of the Southern Wild.
