Joaquin Phoenix explores love with an operating system in the latest trailer for Spike Jonze's Her
I can't help but fall in love every time I see a trailer for HER. There's something sweet and endearing about Joaquin Phoenix's seemingly innocent relationship with an operating system. Though it is a new concept one can see how easy it might be to become enamored with a voice that makes us feel like our life matters. Phoenix's character is in the perfect position to do something like this because he's recently out of a relationship, vulnerable, and alone in a myriad of ways.
The second trailer looks more into those aspects of the main character's life, and a little deeper into Samantha's (the operating system voiced by Scarlett Johansson) search to become something she cannot.
"Falling in love is a crazy thing to do. It's kind of like a form of socially acceptable insanity."
HER opens in theaters on January 10, 2014.
