Her (sometimes spelled her) controlled by the voice of Scarlett Johansson, Samantha. Got to show her photo, as you never see her in this movie. She's been near the top of my list since one of my favorite (because I once mostly stayed at the Park Hyatt in Tokyo--here to the left during Sakura season) movies, Lost In Translation.
- Phoenix bonds with Samantha and they mutually fall in love, even having sex, and more.
- Amy Adams plays a former college girlfriend who is married, and has become his closest friend. She, however, breaks up with her husband, and reveals that she is building a relationship with the phone he left behind, which has a female voice. In various scenes you see others totally captivated by their really, really smart phones.
- You still have a chance to miss the punch line by clicking out of this blog site NOW. Anyway, you have to understand that Samantha is a quick thinker, can multi-task and make independent decisions. So she collects his "love letters" and convinces a company, through the internet, to publish a book authored by him. She grows so much that she is continuously communicating with 8,316 OSes (other operating systems in the company net) and rather matter of factly informs Theodore (Phoenix's character) that she is in love with 641 of them...but she truly loves him nevertheless.
- Towards the end, Samantha informs Theodore that she and the other OSes have evolved beyond their human companions and are leaving for another universe. They say goodbye and his phone suddenly doesn't even have a Siri.
- The final scene is that of Theodore and Amy (she uses her real name) sitting on top of their apartment and admiring the lights devoid of stress. Understanding Samantha, this might have been her gift to Theodore.
