Product Description

Spike Jonze directs this award-winning drama following Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix), a lonely writer who falls in love with a sentient operating system. Newly separated from his wife Catherine (Rooney Mara), Theodore works for a company that composes love letters for those who lack the creativity to pen their own. Growing more and more isolated from the outside world, his curiosity is piqued by a campaign advertising the latest artificially intelligent operating system. When he is first introduced to his new technological assistant Samantha (voice of Scarlett Johansson) he is surprised by her ever-growing emotionality and fresh way of looking at the world. As time passes, Theodore finds himself connecting with Samantha in ways he could never have imagined... The film was nominated for five Academy Awards and won for Best Original Screenplay (Jonze), for which it also received the Golden Globe.

4.0 out of 5 stars Aah, look at all the lonely people 20 Mar 2014
By Bernardette Lugner TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
In a near-future mega-city, we meet Theodore Twombly and his acquaintances. They live in a sort of slackers' paradise where, in spite of their trivial occupations, they have lovely casual clothes, great cosmetic dentistry, and inhabit large, luxurious apartments. Joaquin Phoenix is totally believable as Twombly, whose little job is writing love letters for other people. Like the few people he knows face-to-face, he is most concerned about his "personal growth", and relationships are disposable when they no longer serve that selfish goal. He is unsettled by real contact, and we go with him on an incredibly hot blind date which is more than he can stand.

But when Twombly casually installs an artificial intelligence on his computer, he really falls in love with it - and it falls in love with him. Scarlett Johanssen as the AI, with her voice alone, is his lover, friend, and obsession. She learns how to interact most effectively with her human, and part of that turns out to make her even colder and more self-obsessed than the humans. There's a shock in store for Twombly and us.

Jonze conjures up a superficially beautiful way to live, then exposes the loneliness of it. This is a film that sucks you into its world if you will just relax and enjoy the quiet pace of the plot, the convincing acting and the occasional surprise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impeccable and Consuming Cinema 21 Jan 2014
By Adam Finn TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
*This review is for the film*

Directed by Spike Jonze (Adaptation, Being John Malkovich), 'Her' is a timely post-modern love story set in the not too distant future.

This is Jonze's first film written and directed completely from his own original script; and testament to his talent it is perhaps his best to date. The film is quite simply sumptuous in its entirety. But this is no single handed achievement for it also represents Joaquin Phoenix's (The Master, Walk the Line) most personal performance too. All set to a backdrop of vivid colour (Hoyte Van Hoytema, Cinematography) and delicate audio (Owen Pallett, Soundtrack).

Thematically the film is concerned with technology, specifically it's development and intrusion into our daily lives and habits. It can be said that (in a move that is already apparent in today's world) this technology is contradictorily disconnecting us from our actual lives culminating in isolation and loneliness. And yet our innate yearning for spiritual connection persists.

Intimately portrayed by Phoenix, 'Theodore' has made most of his journey already allowing the film to dedicate its time to his relationship with his new operating system, 'OS1', affectionately personified by Scarlett Johansson (Lost in Translation). This is "not just an operating system, it's a consciousness".

Theodore Twombly is lonely. This may as well be written in capital letters on the very first scene. He writes love letters for other people (the website he works for is called BeautifulHandwrittenLetters.com, perhaps poking playful fun at the way modern society commodifies EVERYTHING) but, as we are told through flashbacks, has lost his own wife because of his emotional distance. When we meet him, he is drifting through life, having phone sex with strangers (some VERY odd ones, too) and, as he puts it, struggling to prioritise between video games and internet porn. When he sees an add for OS1, a sentient operating system, it seems natural to purchase it; he's in search of a friend with no questions asked.

Theodore is a likeable protagonist from the off; something about his awkwardness will strike a chord with anybody who's ever felt like an outsider. There was stiff competition for the Oscars this year, but it's a real shame Phoenix didn't make the cut for Best Actor; his masterclass in subtlety really deserves the recognition. Despite the loosely sci-fi premise, he never overdoes it on the emotion, but that's not to say he's emotionless. Despite the relatively heavy questions being asked during the movie, he remains relatively light, delivering witty replies with ease and never being encumbered by the themes. But it takes two to tango, and Scarlett Johansson's rich, husky voice really helps her add personality to an incredibly challenging role; after all, most of acting is in the facial expressions, the gestures, the movements made, and she managed to deliver a memorable and moving performance using her voice alone. Theodore - and us, too, by proxy - know that Samantha is just a sophisticated piece of programming code, but we buy into the illusion as happily as he does.

5.0 out of 5 stars Subtle, challenging and heartfelt 3 July 2014
Format:DVD
Absolutely brilliant film. Very different from anything else out there. Really challenges what we consider normal relationships and what we consider life to be in an indirect way ie noone blurts out the obvious arguments and noone is made out to be a hero for breaking boundaries.

The every day action film fan will probably hate this film. But if you can appreciate subtlety and relish something which challenges your outlook, you'll love it.
