How lonely do you have to be to fall in love with your computer?? In the new Warner Brothers Film “Her,” Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix) does just that. Heartbroken after the end of a long relationship, he becomes intrigued with a new, advanced operating system (voiced by Scarlett Johannson) which promises to be an intuitive and unique entity in its own right.
From the singular perspective of Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Spike Jonze, “Her” is an original love story that explores the evolving nature — and the risks — of intimacy in the modern world. The way technology and online love are going, people often fall for partners they never even meet in person…so is it really that farfetched to imagine a man falling in love with Siri? Peep the trailer:
“Her” is currently playing in select theaters and opens nationwide on January 10. Will you be watching?
