About this Film

Joaquin Phoenix fronts Spike Jonze's 'Her', playing a lonely writer who finds himself falling for a virtual companion.

After a soul-crushing break-up, Theodore (Phoenix) seeks company in a computer operating system, which claims to be so highly intuitive that it can adapt to meet an individual's every need. As he gets to 'know' the digital entity (a.k.a. Samantha), he begins to develop romantic feelings and the unconventional pair begin a relationship.

'Her' features a bevy of female acting talent, including Scarlett Johansson, Amy Adams, Olivia Wilde and Rooney Mara.

Total Film - 4/5 Stars

Joaquin and Scarlett strike a vocal cord

Mobile dating app Tinder was little more than a twinkle in a developer’s eye when Spike Jonze was writing his wry, singular screenplay for Her. But its advent has only made the movie’s imagined future feel more relevant.

In an early scene, Joaquin Phoenix’s lonely writer Theodore scans a selection of audio-only personal ads, in search of a voice that appeals. “Is anybody out there?” one asks, plaintively. The ostensible aim is phone sex – instant gratification – but the real endgame is connection, in any form, with anyone.

Set in a future where technology has advanced while fashion has regressed (high-waisted trousers abound), Her sees recently divorced Theo gradually fall for Samantha (Scarlett Johansson), an artificially intelligent operating system who is first his secretary, then his confidante, and finally his lover.

Her was a beautiful meditation on our evolving understanding of love and humanity. I particularly appreciated its exploration of what it means to be authentic in an age of consumerist technology. I would recommend this to anyone.


Reviewer: SansepoirDate: 2014-03-25

I found this film slow moving, humourless, and unnecessarily sentimental. I wish Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson had not added their names to it - but then, I presume the film could not have done even as well as it did!
