In the not so distant future, Theodore, a lonely writer purchases a newly developed operating system designed to meet the user's every needs. To Theordore's surprise, a romantic relationship develops between him and his operating system. This unconventional love story blends science fiction and romance in a sweet tale that explores the nature of love and the ways that technology isolates and connects us all.
For example one of the main ideas of the movie is that people need to spend more real time together, instead of spending time attached to technology, and the main character's job is writing letters to family members for other people.
My favorite film is Blade Runner, and I like exploring the ideas presented in films of its type - speculative science fiction that breaks down existential ideology while also exploring the perceived limits of technology.
The setting of the film has been filled with colors and warmly saturated hues, making 'Her' even more disturbing for its showcase of a disconnected society, who are in a very daunting way, directly connected to their communitive little computer-companion.
