Her (2013)

Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix) works for a company which write personal letters through the Internet on behalf of other people, a job he does amazingly and sometimes passionately.
After his wife (Rooney Mara) left him, instead of starting a new life, he refuses to sign the divorce papers. 
When a new generation of OS, with an AI surprisingly human, reaches the market, Theodore will start a relationship beyond imagination with it, named Samantha (Scarlett Johansson's voice).

Her is being considered by many to be one of the greatest films of 2013 and one of the best love stories in recent years. I really wish I could agree, but it isn't different from the other love stories with a bad ending. I struggled to watch the whole film, it was just terrible. The "sex scene" was creepy and pathetic. The OS, which is supposed to be super intelligent, falls in love with a depressed man with mental issues? That's beyond science-fiction! I highly do NOT recommend it at all.

The past is just a story we tell ourselves.
