Leave it to Spike Jonze to give us one of the oddest love stories of all time. In his new film Her, Joaquin Phoenix plays Theodore Twombly, a man who is heartbroken after his relationship breaks up. Desperate for love again, Theodore falls for an advanced operating system named Samantha (voiced by Scarlett Johansson).
Already starting to earn some serious awards buzz, Her is a warm and clever film, with some excellent performances from its cast and Jonze’s trademark directorial style stamped all over it. In fact, it might just be the director’s best work yet.
Yesterday, Warner Bros. held a red carpet premiere for the film in Los Angeles and we were on hand to cover the event. Unfortunately, several of the film’s stars more or less skipped the press line, meaning we couldn’t speak with people like Joaquin Phoenix or Amy Adams.
That being said, we did get the chance to catch up with Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde and Matt Letscher, who all have roles in Her. We also spoke with actress Greta Gerwig too, who was in attendance at the event but does not have a part in the film.
