Romantic. Sad. Funny. Triumphant. Just some of the words critics have used to praise the new film by Spike Jonze, 'Her'.
'She' tells the tale of a lonely man who falls in love with a smartphone. While it did not prove to be a box office success, 'She' is among the leading candidates for awards - and some think Oscars could be heading in the direction of 'Her'.
Joaquin Phoenix plays Theodore Twombley, and Scarlett Johansson, she of The Avengers and Match Point, stars as the Her to his Him, and 'She', above all, is a hymn to her.
Hers being a voice-only performance, she is unlikely to win many prizes, but 'She' surely will. But his is the standout performance - he is the best thing in 'Her' and 'She' is a true film for our times.
