Spike Jonze has been creating marvelous worlds — and getting inside our heads in the process — ever since Being John Malkovich. His latest film, Her, takes things a timely step further. It’s the story of a lonely man, played by Joaquin Phoenix, who falls in love with an “artificially intelligent operating system” voiced by none other than Scarlett Johansson. It’s like Siri has a soul, and while we were already looking forward to this movie, after this first glimpse Her has rocketed to the top of our must-see list.
“Her”, graded by Mats Holmgren at Chimney Sweden, will open in a limited release in New York, Los Angeles and Toronto on December 18th, 2013. It will open in a wide release on January 10th, 2014. “Her” has also been announced by the New York Film Festival as it’s selection for the prestigious Closing Night Gala slot.
