Love in the digital age gets a whole new meaning with Spike Jonze’s highly anticipated film.
Set in the near future, Her tells the story of Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix), a broken-hearted writer who develops an intimate relationship with Samantha (voiced by Scarlett Johansson), a virtual woman created by a sophisticated operating system. As the couple’s feelings for each other grow, the film offers a dive into the human psyche and the way it is shaped by technology. Phoenix’s magnetizing screen appeal and the immediately recognizable voice of Johansson assist in making this love story believable and gripping.
The film is scheduled to be released in November 2013.
