Spike Jonze’s Her will likely be snubbed by the Academy next week, but don’t let that oversight fool you as this is one of the most ingenious and resonant American films in recent years — one which is likely to become a Millennial touchstone. Joaquin Phoenix delivers yet another great performance here as a withdrawn writer who, following a difficult divorce, falls in love with his advanced operating system (remarkably voiced by Scarlett Johansson). This frighteningly plausible near-future premise is wonderfully realised by Jonze, with dazzling visuals and production design — as well as a terrific score performed by Arcade Fire — and Her is his most profound and poignant film. A Fistful of Culture is delighted to have five double passes to giveaway courtesy of Sony Pictures, and you can find the competition details below.
Her is in cinemas from February 27. Watch the latest trailer below.
