Ruby Sparks ★★★★

This cast list! Paul Dano, Zoe Kazan, Chris Messina, Steve Coogan, Annette Benning, Antonio Banderas, Alia Shawkat, Aasif Mandvi, Elliot Gould - I mean an embarrassment of riches! And it even has a clip from one of the best movies ever, Sabrina

Written by Kazan herself as an indictment of the manic pixie dream girl trope, it’s complete with an extra specific list of all of Ruby’s adorable little “quirks” and a falling in love montage set to french pop. While certainly not perfect, it’s just so good and under-appreciated, and definitely a bit of a head fuck.
