This is unfortunately not my area of expertise so I would appreciate suggestions from our readers. Among the few romantic films I've seen this year, the one which stood out for me was Ruby Sparks.
Featuring a writer as the protagonist, Ruby Sparks imagines what would happen to his life if one of his characters suddenly came to life. It is a young woman called Ruby in this case and she turns out to be everything he was looking for.
Can a seemingly perfect woman make a man's life better though? That is the central theme of this charming film from the makers of the indie hit, Little Miss Sunshine.
Honourable mentions: Safety not Guaranteed, Hysteria
