Director Spike Jonze explores the peculiar connection between a man and his computer in Her. Joaquin Phoenix stars as Theodore Twombly, a downtrodden man who purchases an advanced computer operating system (voiced by Scarlett Johansson), which is unique to each individual user. Despite their obvious differences, Theodore and Samantha begin to connect on levels that neither of them expected. In addition, we have over 30 new photos for this upcoming dramatic comedy, debuting in limited release December 18 before expanding nationwide January 10.
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.
