There are endless charms in every film which has seen it through all these years by millions of people across the world. Proof of this is that Netflix recently decided to add it to their catalog, showing that it’s still totally legit.
This story, which Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix) y samantha (Scarlett Johansson), a girl born as part of the artificial intelligence program, has been one of the most fascinating dramas in recent years. Its meticulous and original staging, use of colors and negative framing, mix of color temperatures and above all a script that narrates this special relationship with great care and delicacy are enough reasons for its audience to love it.
Of course, so does its stellar cast: in addition to the two mentioned, there are also Rooney Mara, Amy Adams, and Chris Pratt. The performance of the team was certainly appreciated by all. Let’s remember that Scarlett only contributes her voice, as she represents an operating system, she never physically appears in the film. This was no deterrent for the actress, who knew how to convey a whole range of emotions with her powerful voice.
There was even a scene that made everyone uncomfortable. Joaquin Phoenix Who left the set of the film. The relationship between Theodore and Samantha slowly grows as time passes in the film. At one point, after a romantic dinner, he lies down on her bed and confesses that he wants to have her there so he can touch and feel her. She starts prodding him to tell her what he will do and it starts to turn on the characters. That’s when Samantha’s character has an orgasm that was so well acted that it made Phoenix leave the set while they were filming the scene.
Undoubtedly a showcase of the power of Scarlett’s performance, and also of Joaquin Phoenix’s level of rapport with his characters, something he certainly demonstrated with his Joker in the Todd Phillips film, where he delivered the best performance of his career.
For those who want to enjoy the film Hisavailable on the platform Netflix And it’s definitely recommended.
