HER Romantic Drama
(15) 2013 126 min
Theodore is a lonely man in the final stages of his divorce. He takes up a relationship with Samantha, the voice behind his computer operating system. As they start spending time together they grow closer and closer and eventually find themselves in love.
A truly innovative film from US director Spike Jonze. Great leading performance from Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams in a supporting role. The voice of Samantha is supplied by Scarlett Johansson who, but for the rules of the Academy, should have been nominated for the Oscar. “Nothing short of brilliant. What does it mean to be human? And if we create near-humans what is our responsibility to them and what is their relationship to us? These themes have preoccupied film-makers before but none of the films presented it so thoroughly, intimately and believably.
