Her (2013) – IMDb. Great movie all around. Really powerful w/o much cliche.
It brings up a lot of questions about love and what is ‘real’ – does it just require 1 person, if it’s just based on 1 person, is it still doomed to have the same struggles?
Are relationships best when there’s struggle? Do we need it? Is it perfected in the imperfections?
Or can a relationship only be ‘real’ if it’s 2 people?
Of course his emotions were real, but was it a real relationship? If so, then what’s the definition? B/c if it doesn’t require a body, conscience, soul, etc. then does it require communication? What else?
Anyway, it’s interesting to think about.
Ultimately, I believe in the end they found that they turned to other people (Theodore and Amy at the end) for comfort. Ironically, just another person being there w/o talking was comforting.
