Trailer of the Week: Joaquin Phoenix Falls For His Computer, Voiced By Scarlett Johansson, in Spike Jonze's 'Her'

Before We Saw the Trailer, We Thought: Spike Jonze's latest mind-bender has been all but a mystery until now, save for those in attendance at the L.A. Film Festival who were lucky enough to catch two clips from the romance, centered on a man (played by Joaquin Phoenix) who falls for his computer operating system (voiced by Scarlett Johansson).

For more indie film trailers check out Indiewire's trailer page, sponsored by Sony Pictures Classics.

And Now? Recalling the melancholic and romantic tone of Michel Gondry's "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," the trailer for "Her" is a promising beauty. Following his deeply troubled turns in "The Immigrant," which played at Cannes, and last year's "The Master," it's refreshing to see Phoenix in soulful mode, playing a heartbroken man in need of a lifelong companion. Co-stars Amy Adams and Rooney Mara also make great appearances in the spot.

"Her" opens in select theaters on November 20th. Thoughts on the look of Jonze's latest?

    This film looks phenomenally stupid.

    Anyone else reminded of Electric Dreams?

    Electric Dreams meets Stranger Than Fiction meets Wings of Desire (or something like that)
