#019 – All About Her

On this episode of the Reel World Theology Podcast:


We talk about Spike Jonze film, Her, about a man, in the “not too distant future”, who falls in love with his operating system. This film, starring Joaquin Phoenix, Scarlett Johansson, Rooney Mara, Amy Adams, Chris Pratt, etc, etc, has received universal acclaim and is nominated for 5 Academy Awards including “Best Original Screenplay” and “Best Picture” (and it’s probably a travesty that Phoenix isn’t nominated for “Best Actor”). This pseudo sci-fi tale weaves a story that takes us down roads where we have to explore humanities ability to love, connect, and make any type of relationship work. Ultimately, we are left to wonder “can you truly love a machine?”
