HerDVD - 2014
"The film's genius is how it grounds the notion of a man falling for an artificially intelligent machine with reality. Just how many clicks away is this from online dating?"--USA Today
"One of the more original, hilarious and even heartbreaking stories of the year."--Richard Roeper.com
"Johansson's vocal tour de force is award-worthy. So is the movie. Ignore the soft ending. Jonze is a visionary whose lyrical, soulful meditation on relationships of the future cuts to the heart of the way we live now."--Rolling Stone
"...goes light-years beyond science-fiction cliches. As the story progresses further into unexpected territory, 'Her' sometimes feels like an out-of-body experience."--Newsday
From Library Staff
A Spike Jonze love story between a man and his phone.
Her takes on the science fiction theme of artificial intelligence to a new level, and makes it into a personal story about a man struggling to connect with others. One of the most heartfelt and unique films I've seen.

"Falling in love is a crazy thing to do. It's like a socially acceptable form of insanity."
Theodore: "Sometimes I think I have felt everything I'm ever gonna feel. And from here on out, I'm not gonna feel anything new. Just lesser versions of what I've already felt."
Lyrics of featured song by
Karen O's The Moon Song
I'm lying on the moon
My dear, I'll be there soon
It's a quiet and starry place
Time's we're swallowed up
In space we're here a million miles away
There's things I wish I knew
There's no thing I'd keep from you
It's a dark and shiny place
But with you my dear
I'm safe and we're a million miles away
We’re lying on the moon
It’s a perfect afternoon
Your shadow follows me all day
Making sure that I'm
Okay and we’re a million miles away

Theodore: Dear Catherine, I've been sitting here thinking about all the things I wanted to apologize to you for. All the pain we caused each other. Everything I put on you. Everything I needed you to be or needed you to say. I'm sorry for that. I'll always love you 'cause we grew up together and you helped make me who I am. I just wanted you to know there will be a piece of you in me always, and I'm grateful for that. Whatever someone you become, and wherever you are in the world, I'm sending you love. You're my friend to the end. Love, Theodore.
