Theo is a man going through a tough time. He is on his way to divorce, all he has to do is sign the papers. He doesn't have much of a dating life, and when he does try to date he is considered something of an odd duck, making his dates not as successful as he would like. His best friend is a young woman named Amy, played by Amy Adams, who is herself in a difficult and interesting relationship. Theo realizes that with his OS, Samantha, he can be who he wants and who he is, and really she makes him a better man.
The relationship is of course complicated, he's a human and she's a computer. In the end the question is where do they go and how do they get there?
This movie was a really good movie. It was quiet and funny and sad and beautiful. There were moments when I wondered how it would end and where they could go, but then when the movie reached the end I saw that it couldn't have ended any other way. I did wonder how much we rely on technology, and how many people out there might already be in love with their computers. It would be so easy to fall in love with someone who wasn't there, a long distance relationship might work better than living with someone, but is the relationship real.
I recommend this movie to everyone. It is a sci-fi romantic comedy and it should have received more hype than it did. This is really a movie for anyone, except those who only like horror and death, those of you who like that won't get much out of this movie.
