Every Tuesday, I will post a trailer I saw in the past week that I felt was worth sharing.
Written and directed by Spike Jonze, Her will be released on December 18th, and stars Joaquin Phoenix, Scarlett Johansson, Amy Adams, and Rooney Mara.
After the initially limited release, the film will go wide in January, to qualify for an award run.
I chose the trailer because I think the film has a good chance, particularly given Jonze’s track record, of really capturing that particular brand of loneliness where any, even illusory, human contact, can be both incredibly difficult and completely vital.
Karen O, who also wrote a lot of the music for Jonze’s Where the Wild Things Are, which I thought was wonderful, also wrote a track for Her.
