Her at Landmark E Street - Meet at 3 pm

Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Jan 12th at the 3:30 showing of Her at the Landmark E Street Cinema. Look for Brian A. wearing a blue, striped sweater in the ground floor theatre lobby about 30 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.

Set in Los Angeles, slightly in the future, Her follows Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix, The Master), a complex, soulful man who makes his living writing touching, personal letters for other people. Heartbroken after the end of a long relationship, he becomes intrigued with a new, advanced operating system, which promises to be an intuitive entity in its own right, individual to each user. Upon initiating it, he is delighted to meet “Samantha,” a bright, female voice (Scarlett Johansson) who is insightful, sensitive and surprisingly funny. As her needs and desires grow, in tandem with his own, their friendship deepens into an eventual love for each other. From the unique perspective of Oscar-nominated filmmaker Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich, Where the Wild Things Are, Adaptation) comes an original love story that explores the evolving natureand the risksof intimacy in the modern world. Also starring Amy Adams, Rooney Mara and Olivia Wilde.

    For those of you who went to the discussion I mentioned how another actress originally filmed the role of Samantha. Here's an article detailing the casting change to Scarlett Johanssen and other trivia about the movie:http://m.hitfix.com/in-contention/her-qa-spike-jonze-on-why-he-replaced-samantha-morton-with-scarlett-johansson

    Just stumbled upon this quote and thought it was a very nice follow up response to "Her":
    "Love is not really the experience of beauty and romantic joy alone. Love is associated with ugliness and pain and aggression as well as with the beauty of the world; it is not the recreation of heaven. Love or compassion, the open path, is associated with "what is." In order to develop love - universal love, cosmic love, whatever you would like to call it - one must accept the whole situation of life as it is, both the light and the dark, the good and the bad. One must open oneself to life, communicate with it."
