Dir Spike Jonze / US 2013 – 126 mins
Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Scarlett Johansson
Set in the near future, Spike Jonze’s prescient film follows Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix), a man who develops a relationship with Samantha, an artificial computer operating system, personified with a female voice (Scarlett Johansson).
This is the third in a sequence of three films exploring the place artificial females have occupied in depictions of the future. A summary of underlying theme of the sequence will be given by Gia Milinovich before the screening of Blade Runner on Tuesday 10 October.
The DM film season is co-curated by Christopher Frayling, Fiona McGarva and Malcolm Garrett, and sponsored by Auto Trader.
