Set in the Los Angeles of the slight future, Her follows Theodore Twombly, a complex, soulful man who makes his living writing touching, personal letters for other people. Heartbroken after the end of a long relationship, he becomes intrigued with a new, advanced operating system, which promises to be an intuitive entity in its own right, individual to each user. Upon initiating it, he is delighted to meet "Samantha," a bright, female voice, who is insightful, sensitive and surprisingly funny. As her needs and desires grow, in tandem with his own, their friendship deepens into an eventual love for each other.
Director: Spike Jonze
Starring: Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Chris Pratt, Olivia Wilde, Rooney Mara, Samantha Morton and Scarlett Johansson
What the critics are saying:
Certified Fresh on Rotton Tomatoes
"Sweet, soulful, and smart, Spike Jonze's Her uses its just-barely-sci-fi scenario to impart wryly funny wisdom about the state of modern human relationships."
Christian Science Monitor
"The wistfulness in this movie is large-souled. Theodore may worry that his love for Samantha makes him a freak, but Amy knows that “anybody who loves is a freak.” All this may sound touchy-feely in the worst way, but Jonze is trying to get at how we seek romantic connection in this brave (or not so brave) new world. Like Theodore, he risks looking foolish."
"Her is an outstanding movie, in part because of its originality, but also because of its execution."
"Sad, funny, and quietly alarming romance."
The New Yorker
"Sad, kooky, and daunting in equal measure, Her is the right film at the right time."
"Her works as a real romance, and as a commentary on the ways technology connects everyone to the world but also isolates us from legitimate, warm human contact."
