Theodore is a lonely man in the final stages of his divorce. When he's not working as a letter writer, his down time is spent playing video games and occasionally hanging out with friends. He decides to purchase the new OS1, which is advertised as the world's first artificially intelligent operating system, "It's not just an operating system, it's a consciousness," the ad states. Theodore quickly finds himself drawn in with Samantha, the voice behind his OS1. As they start spending time together they grow closer and closer and eventually find themselves in love. Having fallen in love with his OS, Theodore finds himself dealing with feelings of both great joy and doubt.

Trivia

When Samantha is helping Theo at work with proof-reading of some letters she says ".. but I'm not much of a poet so I think I might have messed them up a bit". This may be a reference to an Alan Turing paper on Computing and Artificial Intelligence in which he proposes a possible test of a computer's intelligence by posing questions which the computer answers. He proposes the following question and answer as an example: Q: Please write me a sonnet on the subject of the Forth Bridge. A: Count me out on this one. I never could write poetry. See more »

Best Film Of The Year
15 January 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Just finished watching Spike Jonze's new movie 'Her', a beautiful, tender, melancholy film about love and loss and technology. It's that kind of science fiction so close to science fact you can almost look out your window and see it, so in that it's of a piece with Jonze's first movie 'Being John Malkovich', though the cautious, bruised and drifting heart of it reminds me most of (his ex-wife) Sofia Coppola's 'Lost In Translation'.

It's funny: just last month I was saying how 2013 was not such a good year for movies and then 'The Wolf Of Wall Street' came along, and now this, which I think is probably the best of the year.

This is an amazing, unique, magical film that I would recommend to everyone, with the caveat that it almost certainly will make you go 'ouch', at least if you're paying attention. But I'm pretty sure that you won't have seen anything quite like it before.
