Her (2013)

CLEO (Singapore) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Guy falls in love with his talk­ing op­er­at­ing sys­tem, and then learns he’s not the only one who’s grown at­tached to it. It’s a film that will get you think­ing about mod­ern re­la­tion­ships, and the in­creas­ing lone­li­ness in a time where we’re more con­nected than ever. It’s a sci-fi film, but con­sid­er­ing we’re liv­ing in an era where peo­ple get at­tached to inan­i­mate ob­jects, the plot feels ex­tremely true to life. “I think any­body who falls in love is a freak. It’s a crazy thing to do. It’s kind of like a form of so­cially ac­cept­able in­san­ity.”

And the Os­car goes to… Spike Jonze for Best Orig­i­nal Screen­play
