Her: Sunday, February 2 2014

Her is an entertaining movie. Written and directed by Spike Jonze, it revolves around modern relationships between men and women, and between men and women and their technology. John and I enjoyed the film, and found its premise intriguing. I love my iPhone, so I could understand Theodore Twombly's relationship with the operating system of his computer.

Written, directed, and produced by Spike Jonze, Her is a 2013 science fiction romantic comedy-drama film. Joaquin Pheonix is hardly recognizable as Theodore Twombly. He is a long way from the charismatic figure he played in Gladiators. Scarlett Johansson is fabulous as the voice of the new operating system of the computer. Rooney Mara is also far away from the memorable character she played in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Amy Adams plays her part very well, as does the rest of the cast.

Very modern film, set in the not too distant future, and entertaining.
