Her review: Artificial intelligence, real love

Amy Adams and Joaquin Phoenix in <i>Her</i>.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

PHILIPPA HAWKER Our first glimpse of Theodore Twombly is a computer's eye view; he's gazing into a screen, and he's looking at us. Contemplating Theodore (played with an extraordinarily restrained expressiveness by Joaquin Phoenix) is a regular occurrence in Her, a film that is about technology, intimacy and distance, but is also about the mystifying experience of gazing into the human face.

    Great review Craig. Your comparison between Her and Eternal Sunshine is spot on - both are films about sad-sack, depressed male characters falling in love with vibrant yet unattainable women and then dealing with the pain of the inevitable breakdown of the relationship. I'm also glad you noted how terrific Amy Adams is in this film, she should win an Oscar for this, not for American Hustle.

    Her is an outstanding, if incredibly sad, love story.
