Nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay.

Written and directed by Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich, Where the Wild Things Are), Her is an original love story that explores the evolving nature, and the risks, of intimacy in the modern world.

Set in Los Angeles in the near future the film follows Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix), a complex, soulful man who makes his living writing touching, personal letters for other people. Heartbroken after the end of a long relationship, he becomes intrigued with a new, advanced operating system, which promises to be an intuitive and unique entity in its own right.

Upon initiating it, he is delighted to meet "Samantha," a bright, female voice (Scarlett Johansson), who is insightful, sensitive and surprisingly funny. As her needs and desires grow in tandem with his own, their friendship deepens into love.</
