the beginning we meet our protagonist, Theodore Twombly (played by
Joaquin Phoenix), as he is going through a divorce because of his
inability to express his thoughts and emotions enough for his wife to
understand. We follow the depressed Twobmly through his dreary days
where his only highlight is work. Twombly works writing personal letters
for other people - children to parents, employees to bosses, etc. He
has it developed into an art form - the ability to express emotions for
others. However, his personal life seems to be at a standstill until he
meets "Samantha" - a new operating system able to grow and adapt to a
user's needs. Suddenly, Twobly's life is all about Sam, and the
adventure begins blindly, with our protagonist blissfully unaware of the
hardships that lie ahead. Very intriguing and unique. -- recommended by Sarah J. - South Branch Library
