In 2009’s “Where the Wild Things Are,” Spike Jonze managed to make larger-than-life children’s book puppets come to life as a real family with all its ups and downs and genuine pathos, so it’s not surprising that he’s able to take a somewhat gimmicky premise of a human falling in love with his computer and make it just as riveting and real. “Her” may only show us one half of a burgeoning relationship while never letting us forget that the other half is a computer, but it still showcases oneRead More
