His new operating system Samantha, voiced by Scarlett Johansson, is not only intelligent but also charming and understanding, and she and Theo quickly fall in love.It's understandable if that premise sounds bizarre on paper, but in execution Her is far more sweet than creepy. I am holed up in my hotel room on Sunset Boulevard watching tennis, drapes drawn against the remorseless sun, when suddenly: Ding! She sends her driver, Paul, a South African with a mellifluous voice, to pick me up, and before long, we are winding our way up, up into the Hills of Beverly, to the gated community where Lawrence lives in a house she bought last year for about million.
Lying naked beside you in that tiny apartment - it suddenly hit me that I was part of this whole larger thing. Before that, I was just living my life like I knew everything - and suddenly this bright light hit me and woke me up. Although the wonderful script deserves some of the credit for making that film so great, it was immediately clear to me that Spike Jonze was a director with a fresh and imaginative perspective.I've seen Her twice now, and the more I think about it the more I feel that Spike Jonze has crafted the best film of 2013.Her is equally heartfelt and heartbreaking, a deeply personal and thoroughly enjoyable futuristic love story.Like in that film, there's a certain poetic yet whimsical quality to the dialogue in Her and both the main characters are plagued by feelings of loneliness.Beyond the romance though, Her has a lot to say about modern society's obsession with technology.
