Ruby Sparks

In this appealing indie rom-com, a novelist’s girl of his dreams springs from the page to a real person.


Comedy

Rod Lott
In Ruby Sparks, wunderkind author Calvin Weir-Fields (Paul Dano, There Will Be Blood) has a few problems — one being that he is dateless, another that his male dog pees like a girl. More pressing is that he lacks the inspiration to follow up the Great American Novel that landed the high-school dropout on The New York Times best-seller list when he was all of 19.

CFN Quote of the Week

“The hobbits come to life like nothing else. They have songs they sing that you can’t understand but you can dance to them and pretty soon you’re singing the words ... and you are becoming a hobbit. And when you become a hobbit on earth, you’ll be able to do everything you want to do.”

The Wind Rises

The Wind Rises is a high-flying exit for master animator Hayao Miyazaki


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Fans of Hayao Miyazaki were understandably disappointed when Japan’s master animator announced that his latest feature, The Wind Rises, would also be his last. The 73-yearold filmmaker has given us some of animation’s most brilliant and beautiful works, including My Neighbor Totoro and 2001’s Oscar-winning Spirited AwaySo, yeah, the guy has definitely earned his retirement, and the studio he helped found, Studio Ghibli, is sure to continue making terrific pictures. But it doesn’t make Miyazaki’s departure any less bittersweet.
