Spike Jonze’s film about a lonely man who falls in love with his computer operating system (you’ll just have to go with this one) manages to be weird, witty and wise all at once. Joaquin Phoenix is endearing as the bruised divorcee withdrawing from real human contact, while Scarlett Johansson provides the soft voice to spark his imagination. But the greatest plaudits must go to Jonze’s Oscar-winning script which doesn’t put a word wrong.
