Her - Official Trailer 2        Video

 

Warner Bros. Pictures Warner Bros.

Set in the Los Angeles of the slight future,

"Her" follows Theodore Twombly, a complex, soulful man

who makes his living writing touching,

personal letters for other people.

 

Heartbroken after the end of a long relationship,

he becomes intrigued

with a new, advanced operating system,

which promises to be an intuitive entity

in its own right, individual to each user.

 

Upon initiating it,

he is delighted to meet "Samantha," a bright, female voice,

who is insightful, sensitive and surprisingly funny.

 

As her needs and desires grow, in tandem with his own,

their friendship deepens into an eventual love for each other.

 

From the unique perspective

of Oscar-nominated filmmaker Spike Jonze

comes an original love story

that explores the evolving nature—and the risks—

of intimacy in the modern world.
