Several studies claim that technology affects our personal relationships, but what if you fall in love with a computer and it loves you back? Featuring Scarlett Johansson as Samantha (voice) and Joaquin Phoenix as Theodore, Her is one of the most unusual love stories you’ll come across.
The film centres on Theodore, a lonely writer who falls for Samantha, the voice of his newly-purchased operating system intended to meet his daily needs.
The trailer opens with Theodore waking up to Samantha’s voice as she informs him of a meeting schedule; she even cracks a few jokes and makes sure it’s a jolly good morning for her master. Samantha makes out from Theodore’s emails that he has recently broken up, and while Theodore feels she is being nosy, Johansson in her beautiful voice says, ‘You will get used to it.’
While interacting with an apparent friend Amy (played by Amy Adams), Theodore reveals he is dating Samantha and feels very close to her whenever they talk. ‘She is not just a computer,’ claims the love-struck writer.
Theodore always wanted to have a wife without facing the challenges of being married and has finally found his perfect match. Don’t miss the trailer of ‘Her’ attached below and some stills on the following pages.
