Next Feature – her – Monday 20th October

Her, a very distinct Spike Jonze creation, is a romantic comedy that follows the life of Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix) and how the torment of a divorce can help you find friendship in unusual places. After seeking comfort in his OS (operating system) voiced by Scarlett Johansson, a relationship ensues.

Given the ever evolvement of artificial intelligence this heartfelt story was doomed from the offset.  Set in 2015 it is almost futuristic with a splash of science fiction and a whole lot of human emotion.
