From the unique perspective of Oscar-nominated filmmaker Spike Jonze comes an original love story that explores the evolving nature—and the risks—of intimacy in the modern world.
Man falls in love with artificial intelligence operating system. Artificial intelligence operating system falls in love with man. Sounds strange eh? But this trailer looks sensitive, warm, and not as creepy as it appears to be. Joaquin Phoenix is the perfect candidate for this role and oozes a natural odd-ball-esque character. From Spike Jonze, director of Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, and Where The Wild Things Are, I think this film is going to be pretty touching and an insightful look into the influence of modern technology on the intimate aspects of our lives.

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.
