Her (2013)

A contemporized psychoanalysis of the modern technological age, cutting-edge indictment of material-capitalism, and sci/drama/rom-com exploration of the landscape of 21st-century romance doubling as a poignant & beautifully-acted love story of pure emotionalism by its Joaquin Phoenix-led cast. 9.5/10.

Plot Synopsis: A sensitive and soulful man earns a living by writing personal letters for other people. Left heartbroken after his marriage ends, Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix) becomes fascinated with a new operating system which reportedly develops into an intuitive and unique entity in its own right. He starts the program and meets “Samantha” (Scarlett Johansson), whose bright voice reveals a sensitive, playful personality. Though “friends” initially, the relationship soon deepens into love.
