I just saw this for the first time on HBO. One could look at the posters and easily think this is a chick flick. It isn't. It's about the narcissism and insecurity people bring into relationships that ultimately dooms many of them. It's brilliant. Ruby Sparks Paul Dano, Zoe Kazan and Chris Messina are amazing.
