Why can't a film simply exist without trying to change the world? There are plenty of different kinds of movies, and in the chaos of awards season some wonderful, little flicks are completely forgotten.
Writing a love letter to your sweetheart is no small feat, but writing a love letter to your city? That's even harder. How do you celebrate a metropolis like Los Angeles? If you're Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, you make a movie.
For me this film fails in its premise yet I hope Kazan keeps writing, but about more genuine subjects. She has talent that was spewed in Ruby Sparks, but her early draft should have been left in the trash,.
