Marielle Wakim: A Cinematic Love Letter To Los Angeles
Huffington Post - over 4 years
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. Ruby Sparks, Dayton and Faris' first film since the Oscar-winning Little Miss Sunshine, is not only a surprisingly nuanced indie romance but also a visual valentine to our city. The story follows neurotic writer Calvin (Paul Dano), whose early success has led to a case of impenetrable writer's block.

NYTimes - about 6 years
LOS ANGELES -- Hollywood and older Americans have never had much use for each other. The 50-plus crowd doesn't go to opening weekends or buy popcorn; a youth-obsessed Hollywood has happily ignored them. But in the last few months an older audience has made a startling reassertion of its multiplex power. ''True Grit,'' ''The King's Speech,'' ''The
