In the not distant future, Joaquin Phoenix falls in love with an artificial intelligence program voiced by Scarlett Johansson. As Thomas pointed out in his review, one thing that really sticks out in this movie is how much face time the viewer gets with Joaquin Phoenix, and how great a job he does of portraying a melancholy and contemplative yet compelling person on screen for nearly two full hours. Don’t watch it for a portrayal of what a world of well-functioning artificial intelligence will look like, but do watch it for its honest depiction of the human condition. So I agree with James, even though I don’t necessarily disagree with Thomas. Worth Watching.

Added: I forgot to mention in my original post that the protagonist in this movie has a truly fantastic name: Theodore Twombly. That is all.
