A man (Joaquin Phoenix) going through a divorce (Rooney Mara) and living a sligtly lonely existence, stars up a relationship wth the female voice (Scarlett Johansson) of his new artificial intelligent computer operating system. This is one of those films that is cinema rather than entertainment. It mixes an exploration of what it is to be human, with how artificial intelligence copes with conciousness and having no physical body. Joaquin Phoenix struggles to cope with his various relationships (ex-wife, friend (Amy Adams), AI operating system) and the AI system struggles with its evolving understanding of human emotions and relationships. It also explores sexuality within the relationship.
