Spike Jonze is a pretty polarizing filmmaker. It seems that those who saw his version of Where The Wild Things Are either loved it or hated it, and now the director is back with another full length feature after dabbling in the world of shorts. (Short films, not short pants. Because that would be weird.)
In the not so distant future, Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix), a lonely writer purchases a newly developed operating system designed to meet the user's every needs. To Theordore's surprise, a romantic relationship develops between him and his operating system. This unconventional love story blends science fiction and romance in a sweet tale that explores the nature of love and the ways that technology isolates and connects us all.
Sounds pretty good to me, and definitely right up Jonze's alley. As the synopsis said, Joaquin Phoenix is starring in the film, and his co-stars will be Amy Adams, Olivia Wilde, and Rooney Mara. An eclectic group to be sure, but also one that should fit well in Jonze's stylized world.
Plus, our friends at The Film Stage tracked down the working title for the movie, which had previously been shrouded in mystery. It's apparently going by the name Her. Short and sweet. Sound off in the comments and let us know if you're looking forward to Jonze's newest feature!
