Her: Shaker Square/Edwins Restaurant

 

Spike Jonze takes the helm for this comedy about a withdrawn writer (Joaquin Phoenix) who falls in love with his computer's advanced operating system (sounds like iphone's "Siri" on steroids!).

120 minutes. Also starring Scarlett Johansson as "the voice of the computer", Amy Adams and Rooney Mara.

Peter Travers, Rolling Stone review: Jonze is a visionary whose lyrical, soulful meditation on relationships of the future cuts to the heart of the way we live now.

7:20PM MOVIE at Shaker Square 

Meet us in the lobby ahead of time, look for us in the theater, or catch up with us near the outer doors after the film.

9:30PM DINNER/DISCUSSION at Edwins Restaurant 

We'll take a 2-minute walk to Edwins at Shaker Square

Just in case you don't connect with the group after the film, proceed over to the restaurant and ask to sit at the "Movie Group" table.

    It was a great movie. I waited in the lobby for the meetup group. I had to sit alone. Could not find you.

    this might seem like a stupid question for those the answer was obvious. but, what was it with the safety pins on his shirt pockets? was that simply to reduce the size of the pockets?

      I think it was so that device with the OS would stay up in his pocket so she could see

    This is a story of our relationship with machines and where that’s heading in the very near future –and, also how this relationship is affecting our ability to communicate with other humans. Very interesting and well acted. I believed all the main characters…including Samantha! Good discussion and fun times at Edwins—thanks to all who came.

      It had me thinking about relationships in general (interpersonal, familial, with our pets), love (how much is physical, emotional, inttellectual), and needs and priorities - what we do to feel connected.

    Iam so sorry I have to cancel on such short notice. I hope someone gets to take my dinner spot. My second shift replacement at work did not show up, I had to work over until they could find another nurse. Sounds like a very special movie. Have a great night!
