(2013) dir Spike Jonze w/Joaquin Phoenix, Scarlett Johansson, Amy Adams [126 min; 35mm]
Undoubtedly the most benign A.I. in this trio of films, the love interest in HER is actually a next-gen, Siri-like assistant named Samantha. Samantha (Johansson) is a self-aware operating system that lonely professional letter writer Theodore (Phoenix) installs on his phone – and starts a romantic relationship with. Join The Technoskeptic and the Brattle for a screening of the film followed by a discussion about the reality of the science behind it.
