If you're like me, I was initially like huh? A movie about a guy falling in love with his computer? On top of that, the movie poster is Joaquin Phoenix looking like a middle-aged perv. But since it was nominated for some Academy Awards, and won for Best Screenplay, I thought I would try it. There's now a growing genre of movies about artificial intelligence: Terminator, A.I., The Matrix. Most of those movies focus on what happens long after the "singularity." Her, however, is about the very first moments of meeting a self-aware program. Think of the first time you met your boy/girlfriend. It's exciting, a little awkward. The movie has lots of clever ideas. Someday we may all experience this with our phones or watches.
