Her // A Movie Review

Have you seen the movie Her? 
If not, you definitely should. 

A 2013 sci-fi film set in the slight future follows the story of Theodore Twombly, a lonely, soulful man with unattractive moustache and glasses who wears the high-waisted pants that have apparently become fashionable for men in this era. 

He falls in love with his computer operating system, (OS). By falling in love, I mean that he develops a relationship with an intelligent OS, linked to a smartphone handset with earpiece with a female voice and personality called Samantha played in voice only by Scarlet Johansson. 
That's not too unlikely in this era of smartphones and tablets, with our lives becoming increasingly controlled within those devices.

Theodore makes his living writing touching, personal letters for other people in a company called in a "creative" office space. Ironically, he is himself heartbroken with the impending divorce from his wife. 

There are some great moments in the movie with sentimental endings. It’s astounding how digital affairs are as sensual and heartbreaking – as the real thing. 

It’s about the fundamental truth that love is about sacrifice and sharing. It’s about accepting the knowledge that we must surrender a piece of ourselves, we must compromise, in exchange for a lasting and meaningful connection. 

It’s about the truth that no one is perfect; no one is ever exactly who we've imagined them to be. But if they're there in good times and bad, in the still of the night and amid the chaos of the day, nothing else matters. 

Her is a movie that is recommended for your Valentine’s date night, a movie which is highly significant in today’s lives. 

Wishing you all a Happy Valentine's day.
