Beyond a shadow of a doubt, ‘Her’ is one of the most awaited films of 2014. Starring Joaquin Phoenix as Theodore and Scarlett Johansson as Samantha -- the voice of an operating system -- the film has got a new touching TV spot.
Interacting with Samantha, Theodore asks, ‘You wanna hear a joke? What does a baby computer call its father?’ He has Samantha in splits when he tells her the answer is ‘Data’!
In the video, Theodore has a great time showing Samantha around. ‘I feel like I can be anything with you,’ says the love-struck writer who just broke up with his girlfriend. The best part is it (or rather she) loves him back. Singing songs together, Theodore and Samantha seem inseparable.
‘Her’ 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 film has been screened at various film festivals and has been largely appreciated by critics from all over the world. The film has also been nominated for three Golden Globe Awards; it remains to be seen how many it will clinch.
