Her + Q&A in association with IF Oxford15

Directed by Spike Jonze | USA | 2013 | 2h 6m | Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Scarlett Johansson, Rooney Mara, Amy Adams, Olivia Wilde

Heartbroken after the end of his marriage, a lonely writer becomes fascinated with a new and sophisticated computer operating system designed to meet the user’s every needs. To his surprise, a bond develops between him and the system which blossoms into something resembling love.

Join neuroscientists from the University of Oxford for a screening and discussion about this Oscar-winning 2013 sci-fi romance, exploring artificial intelligence, machine learning, and what it means to be human.

Reviews

‘A screwball surrealist comedy that asks us to laugh at an unconventional romance while also disarming us with the realization that its fantasy scenario isn’t too far from our present reality.’
★★★★★
Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine

Screening in association with IF Oxford Science and Ideas Festival 2022. More info: https://if-oxford.com/

Plan your visit

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
