The Next Best Picture Podcast – “Her”

By Matt Neglia 

Our 2013 retrospective is continuing with Spike Jonze’s Oscar-winning film “Her,” starring Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Olivia Wilde, Chris Pratt and the incredible voice talent of Scarlett Johansson. Set in the not too distant future, the film explores relationships, depression, loneliness, and humanity’s connection (or lack thereof) with one another as it relates to our ever-growing dependence on technology. There’s a lot to talk about with this one, and to join me in this discussion, I have Nicole AckmanDan BayerJosh ParhamLauren LaMagna, and guest Joe Lorenzini. Take a listen as we discuss the film’s themes, its crafts, performances, Oscar awards season run, and more! Enjoy! You can also check out our previous 2013 retrospective reviews of “Captain Phillips,” “Philomena,” “The Wolf Of Wall Street,” & “The Great Gatsby” if you have not done so already.
