        Film Screening: "Her" (Spike Jonze, 2013, 126 min, USA, in English, Color, DCP) / A sensitive and soulful man earns a living by writing personal letters for other people. Left heartbroken after his marriage ends, Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix) becomes fascinated with a new operating system which reportedly develops into an intuitive and unique entity in its own right. He starts the program and meets "Samantha" (Scarlett Johansson), whose bright voice reveals a sensitive, playful personality. Though "friends" initially, the relationship soon deepens into love. / -- Winner of Oscar for Best Writing, Original Screenplay at Academy Awards (2014)! / -- 4 Oscar Nominations, including for Best Motion Picture of the Year! / -- Winner for Best Screenplay at Golden Globes (2014)! "A sublimely original film about human connections that feels personal - yet makes a haunting statement about all of society." - Mara Reinstein, US Weekly / "It's an odd, sad love story, combined with a meditation on technology as an accelerator of social loneliness. Not a small part of it seems to be an allegory of lonely guys and their fear of women." - Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail / Trailer:
