ABOUT THE FILM

Set in the Los Angeles of the slight future, “Her” follows Theodore Twombly, a complex, soulful man who makes his living writing touching, personal letters for other people. Heartbroken after the end of a long relationship, he becomes intrigued with a new, advanced operating system, which promises to be an intuitive entity in its own right, individual to each user. Upon initiating it, he is delighted to meet “Samantha,” a bright, female voice, who is insightful, sensitive and surprisingly funny. As her needs and desires grow, in tandem with his own, their friendship deepens into an eventual love for each other.


From the unique perspective of Oscar-nominated filmmaker Spike Jonze comes an original love story that explores the evolving nature—and the risks—of intimacy in the modern world.

SOUNDTRACK

Welcome to Everything About Everything: a map of the influences and inspiration behind Her. This blog is a place to document the movie¹s journey and throw a spotlight on its collaborators and friends. Also we'll be sharing interesting, thought-provoking, and inspiring pieces we've discovered that make us happy, or make us curious, or make us feel alive. Things that we love that we hope you'll love too. Enjoy!
Her assistant director Thomas Patrick Smith (who also worked on Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, and Where the Whild Things Are) explains to the Los Angeles Times how he helps Spike choose the teams who work on his films:

L.A. Times: We’ve talked to a number of people on this movie about their vision but we haven’t delved into how they came together in the first place. You help Spike assemble his teams. How does it work?
Thomas Patrick Smith: It’s a very painstaking process. Spike pretty much selects every single person who’s going to be involved in his movies, and no one is there arbitrarily. It starts as a circle of six or eight people — the people you’ve been talking to, who go back with him almost 20 years — and then the next meeting it grows, maybe 10 to 14. And then the room keeps filling with chairs, and at these meetings Spike just goes around the room and takes everyone’s temperature.
L.A. Times: But not everyone is handpicked by Spike, are they?
Thomas Patrick Smith: Actually they are. Before we begin shooting everyone gets interviewed. And I mean everyone. Including the person holding the cable. “What do you like? What are you going to bring to the table?” We’re trying to figure out the important things. Are you the person who works with the resonance? Or are you working against the flow?

L.A. Times: How do they react to that?
Thomas Patrick Smith: At first some of these folks are like, “What, I have to meet Spike?” They’re not prepared for the level of intimacy they’re expected to bring. And sometimes there’s resistance. I’ll hear, “That’s not the way we do it on the big pictures.” And my immediate response is, “We don’t want to do it like they do it on the big pictures.”
