Director Spike Jonze
Duration 126 min
Spike Jonze’s not-too futuristic love story imagines a sweetly human romance between man and machine.
In a sleek, sorbet-coloured future Los Angeles, a lonely copywriter named Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix) decides to try out a new, artificially intelligent computer operating system who calls herself Samantha (voiced by Scarlett Johansson). What happens next will make you cry. But Samantha is much more than just a Manic Pixie Dreambot! Spike Jonze uses the DNA of a love affair to tell a wise story about humanity and technology in this Oscar and Golden Globe-winning film.
Before the feature the handsome folk at Smith Journal will screen their short film Bottled History, which profiles Ray Gascoigne, a former shipwright, merchant sailor, and now a ship builder on the smallest dry dock there is: a bottle. Co-produced with Melbourne production studio Commoner. Smith will also bestow free mags full of good reads to ticket-holders.
“The past is just a story we tell ourselves.”
“As an enthralling, thrilling, romantic, beautiful, fun, weird piece of art, few things have felt more relevant.”
“Her is billed as ‘a Spike Jonze love story’. We are a long way, though, from the world of Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. What makes Her so tantalising and original is that it is as much a story about self-delusion and narcissism on the grandest scale as it is a conventional romantic comedy.”
“The heart is not like a box that gets filled up; it expands in size the more you love. I’m different from you. This doesn’t make me love you any less. It actually makes me love even more.”
