Admitting to your friends that the film Her, directed and written by Spike Jonze, is one of your favorite movies instantly puts you into the shoes of the film’s protagonist Theodore Twombly.
“Wait isn’t that the movie where that dude falls in love with a computer?”
“Well actually his OS…”
“OS…Operating System. Like what runs your computer”
“Oh…and you liked the movie?”
Yes, despite the judgment, I did. In fact, much like Theodore fell in love with Samantha, his artificially intelligent operating system, I fell in love with the film about love, loss and acceptance.
