"Her" - 4:15 p.m. Saturday 18/1 at the Nova

We will meet at the Nova Restaurant from 3 p.m. onwards, Stefan - 0437777522.

"If ever there was a romantic scenario for our time, it’s “Her.” Set in a slightly futuristic Los Angeles, it’s about Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix), a lonely guy who finds love with a personalized computer operating system.

Theodore, soft-spoken, with a bushy moustache, writes love letters for clients of the company “Beautiful Handwritten Letters,” although he himself is lovelorn. He pines for his wife, Catherine (Rooney Mara), from whom he is separated, and dreads their imminent divorce. When he signs up for this latest in computer breakthroughs, the OS1, what he really is looking for is companionship. And boy, does he get it.

Samantha, as she calls herself, is more than a higher-level version of Siri. She’s a consciousness, and, before long, a species of lover. As voiced by Scarlett Johansson, Samantha is chipper and smoky-voiced – a combination helpmate and soul mate and cybervamp. Theodore, the professional romantic, is smitten."

Peter Rainer.
