Movie Review: Her

(Rated R, by the way.)

On a trip to the mall, my friends and I decided to watch the film Her. I've been dying to see this movie since I first saw the trailer (Huge fan of River & Joaquin Phoenix.) The movie is a beautifully told sci-fi love story by Spike Jonze. It takes place in the distant future and tells the story of Theodore Twombly, a recently divorced man who finds solace in an OS (an advanced operating system) who names herself Samantha. The two then fall in love but then soon realize how complex their relationship is.

There is just so much to love about this movie. The concept, the acting, the script, the writing, the soundtrack, and basically just the whole style of the movie is so distinct and so original. I found it very difficult to hold back my tears on some of the scenes. It's such an emotional and diverse piece, but at the same time funny and witty. This movie is definitely not for children because it  has some adult content but it is ideal for young adults. (Maybe teenagers if they can handle it.)

All in all, this film is brilliant, compelling, and I recommend it for those who are fans of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this film. This is undoubtedly a must-see film.

 Rating: 10 out of 10
