In a future Los Angeles, Theodore Twombly makes his living working for an online company writing personal letters for other people. A new computer OS comes out and he gives it a try. The OS personalizes the experience according to people needs and gives it a human voice. Samantha, Theodore's OS, is thoughtful, loving, and funny. As the relationship between the two evolves, they fall in love but soon they begin to question if what they feel for each other is the real thing.
Written, directed, and co-produced by Spike Jonze, Her is one of those movies that are extremely odd to categorize, and may not be appreciated by the majority of moviegoers, but it makes you feel good, and it is food for thought. What does it mean to be in love? Is the love any less real if one of the subjects in the relationship isn't material? Her takes a sentimental look at loneliness and human needs and turns the answers inside out.
Her is a jewel of a film, and to that contribute its solid yet odd screenplay, which won an Academy Award for originality, its superb photography with aerial views of L.A., and its soulful musical score. Another outstanding contribution to the appeal of the movie is the cast.
