A lonely man falls in love with his computer's advanced operating system in this funny and touching sci fi romance.
In near-future Los Angeles, sensitive writer Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix) struggles to get over the break up of his marriage to Catherine (Rooney Mara). He makes his living writing moving personal letters for others, even as he retreats from the world in his own life. Then he installs a new artificially intelligent computer operating system, which introduces itself as Samantha (Scarlett Johansson). Seductively voiced Samantha is intuitive, sensitive, witty, compassionate and filled with wonder at the nature of life and romance. As she learns and develops, so Theodore becomes increasingly entranced by his artificial companion. Before long, their friendship has deepened into love. This intriguing romance takes a clever and sophisticated look at love in the modern world. It's the latest product of the fertile mind of 'Being John Malkovich' and 'Adaptation' director Spike Jonze.
