Her ★★★★½

Right from the opening scene, I knew I was going to fall in love with this movie. It sets up a compelling sci-fi near future, a sympathetic cast of characters, and a quirky but fascinating love story. It's one of those movies that I have a lot of trouble talking about because I liked it so much on a very instinctive level. There were several moments where I found myself tearing up because I connected so deeply to the characters and the things they were struggling with. This is definitely my favorite of the 2013 Best Picture nominees thus far (though I have yet to see Dallas Buyers Club), and I'm glad I finally sat down and watched it.
