Movie Night - Tuesday 8th of April - "HER"

Dear Movie Friends

Wow, that month just flew past and we have this wonderful spring weather still, fingers crossed it lasts.
Last month we had a wonderful big table of about 10 at Bekka House.  I thought the food was very tasty and I liked the movie as well. As usual it was a quirky Wes Anderson film with sort of slap-stick humour or something like that. Many of us enjoyed it.
This month we are seeing another light hearted (well I hope it is) movie. 
In our high tech world of smart phones and aps I propose this month we go to see HER staring Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams & Scarlett Johansson.
Theodore is a lonely man in the final stages of his divorce. When he's not working as a letter writer, his down time is spent playing video games and occasionally hanging out with friends.
He decides to purchase the new OS1, which is advertised as the world's first artificially intelligent operating system, "It's not just an operating system, it's a consciousness," the ad states.
Theodore quickly finds himself drawn in with Samantha, the voice behind his OS1. As they start spending time together they grow closer and closer and eventually find themselves in love. Having fallen in love with his OS, Theodore finds himself dealing with feelings of both great joy and doubt. As an OS, Samantha has powerful intelligence that she uses to help Theodore in ways others hadn't, but how does she help him deal with his inner conflict of being in love with an OS?
