Kurt Loder Reviews Her

Joaquin Phoenix and the woman who wasn't there.


Warner Bros.

Theodore Twombly, lonely guy, may have found the perfect girl. She lives inside his computer. Her name is Samantha, and she is the voice of Theodore's new operating system. She's really something. At first she was all small talk: "Good to meet you," "Do you want to know how I work?" Very Siri. Then things got more interesting. "At every moment, I'm evolving," she informed Theodore. "You'll get used to it." Will he? Spike Jonze's Her is an enchanting tale of love among our many machines, says Kurt Loder.
