A man falls in love with his phone in Spike Jonze's Her


Spike Jonze is back in the realm of making bizarre movies with Her starring Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams. Phoenix plays a writer who buys a "newly developed operating system designed to meet the user's every needs." Then he falls in love with it. I'm pretty sure there's an episode of Big Bang Theory where this happens, so I can't say I'm too enthused by this idea. While this is an interesting way to look at the strange way we are connected to our technology in this era, it doesn't exactly seem like something that smacks of subtlety.

It'll all hinge on Joaquin's performance, I'd imagine, which does put this in at least a slightly better place than just the idea on paper. Here's hoping we'll see a trailer soon.
