Her: Love in the Modern Age

There's plenty of praise to go around for Spike Jonze's fantastic love story Her, even if the box office receipts haven't been all that great. Our awards expert Joey Magidson even made the plea for the Academy to give it some love in their Oscar nominations, and the film walked away with several nods, including Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay. Now The Creators Project and Jonze's own friend and collaborator Lance Bangs has created a doc about love inspired by the film called Her: Love in the Modern Age. Interviews include co-star Olivia Wilde, writer Bret Easton Ellis and many, many others. In full below.

Here is Lance Bangs' short doc Her: Love in the Modern Age by The Creators Project via The Playlist:

Set in LA, slightly in the future, Her follows Theodore Twombly, a complex, soulful man who makes his living writing touching, personal letters for other people. Heartbroken after the end of a long relationship, he becomes intrigued with a new, advanced operating system, which promises to be an intuitive entity in its own right, individual to each user. Upon initiating it, he is delighted to meet Samantha, a bright, female voice, who is insightful, sensitive and surprisingly funny. As her needs and desires grow, in tandem with his own, their friendship deepens into an eventual love for each other. Written & directed by Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich, Where the Wild Things Are). Warner Bros. released Her everywhere on January 10th.
