    'Her' Designers Barrett and Storm Talk Creating Warm, Retro Look

    Turns out that red is not only the warmest color in Spike Jonze's Oscar-contending "Her," but that there was no room for blue in this cozy LA of the near future.

    'Her' Review: Spike Jonze Returns with a Vengeance with Tech Romance (Q & A)
