GLAMOUR Movie Club preview: Her
If you’re pretty sure you’re in a relationship with your phone, you’re totally ready for the GLAMOUR Movie Club Preview of Her, the latest from Oscar-nominated filmmaker Spike Jonze (Where the Wild Things Are, Being John Malkovich).
Set in the not-too-distant future, Her revolves around Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix) – a lonely, antisocial tech user who’s struggling to recover from a divorce. We see him boot up an artificially intelligent personal assistant (think The Big Bang Theory’s Siri in 10 years’ time), called Samantha, voiced by our favourite Scarlett Johansson.
It doesn’t take long for Theodore to fall head over heels for Samantha, and if the trailer is anything to go by, she might have her own digital feelings for him, too.
Her is a film for a modern audience: it’s enthralling, weird, fun, quirky and beautiful, and we can’t help but relate (how many texts have you sent into cyberspace today?).
Get to our GLAMOUR Movie Club Preview of Her, tuck into drinks and sample Café Mechanics mobile bars’ mouth-watering frozen yoghurt before indulging in a mini makeover courtesy of the Clarins team from Stuttafords. If that isn’t enough to get you going, GLAMOUR ticket holders will also have the opportunity to be entered into our Valentine’s draw, and with a high tea for you and five friends from 54 on Bath on offer plus hampers from Red Square, The Body Shop and Clarins, there’s no reason not to enjoy a fabulous night at the movies with GLAMOUR.
