Spike Jonze weaves a delicate, poignant story about a man who falls in love with an operating system.
Dir Spike Jonze
With Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Scarlett Johansson
Kubrick’s evocation of the definitive sci-fi AI with the HAL computer in 2001: A Space Odyssey is updated by Jonze in this subtle and spiritual film – in the form the operating system Samantha (Johansson). Set in a technologically benevolent near-future LA, Her subverts the usual trope of AI; in that instead of seeking to destroy mankind, it simply outgrows us.
