Spike Jonze’s New Film Explores Love in the Digital Age

The release date for Spike Jonze’s new film, Her, has just been set for November 20, 2013. And while it’s been a a few years since the director and screenwriter had a hit (does Where the Wild Things Are count?), the feature-length film promises to be every bit as warm and fuzzy. It stars Joaquin Phoenix at his promisingly goofy best as Theodore, a regular yet lonely guy who falls in love with his computer’s Siri-like voice.

The film is being billed as “an unconventional love story [that] 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.” Scarlett Johansson, Amy Adams, Rooney Mara (who replaces Carey Mulligan), Olivia Wilde, and Samantha Morton round out the all-star lady cast. A trailer isn’t yet available and it’s killing us.
