This trailer is awesome! Not only is it directed by Spike Jonze and stars one of my favorite actors Joaquin Phoenix, but it also stars Scarlett Johansson and we never have to see her terrible acting! Director Spike Jonze clealry wants to become the Michel Gondry of Silver Lake California judging by this trailer. He wants the future to come to the west coast, but not too much, just enough to make it look retro. The trailer for her reminds me of the 2010 short film Spike did called I’m Here. Only the characters are real human’s and not robots.
Her stars Joaquin Phoenix, Scarlett Johansson, Rooney Mara and Amy Adams. Her opens in limited release on November 20th.
Set in Los Angeles, slightly in the future, “her” follows Theodore Twombly, a complex, soulful man who makes his living writing touching, personal letters for other people. Heartbroken after the end of a long relationship, he becomes intrigued with a new, advanced operating system, which promises to be an intuitive entity in its own right, individual to each user. Upon initiating it, he is delighted to meet “Samantha,” a bright, female voice, who is insightful, sensitive and surprisingly funny. As her needs and desires grow, in tandem with his own, their friendship deepens into an eventual love for each other. From the unique perspective of Oscar-nominated filmmaker Spike Jonze comes an original love story that explores the evolving nature—and the risks—of intimacy in the modern world.
