Film Trailers: HER
"A Spike Jonze Love Story." That is how the film is being described and sold. I'm in. Jonze is one of the more visionary auteurs making films today. Well, when he does make a film, which makes each new film an exciting event. By the looks of the trailer, we are going to have another misanthrope, lonely, anti-social individual in search of love and meaning. Joaquin Phoenix looks to be on point and his character, Theodore Twombly, who falls in love with his newly purchased operating system "Samantha" that is voiced by Scarlett Johansson, is going to be an interesting piece filmmaking and storytelling. It looks like another amazing feature from the director with gorgeous lensing by Hoyte Van Hoytema, who also shot the underrated and exceptional Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and will soon be the cinematographer on Christopher Nolan's new sci-fi film Interstellar. The rest of the cast includes Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde and Chris Pratt. Enjoy.
