Consensus: Sweet, soulful, and smart, Spike Jonze's Her uses its just-barely-sci-fi scenario to impart wryly funny wisdom about the state of modern human relationships.

Her shares a lot of themes with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, another story about the difficulty of moving on from relationships that once seemed destined to last forever.

It's an odd, sad love story, combined with a meditation on technology as an accelerator of social loneliness. Not a small part of it seems to be an allegory of lonely guys and their fear of women.

In a dark theater, surrounded by the wondrous world Jonze creates in Her, it's difficult to avoid getting emotional.

Her is a wistful, wonderful meditation on where we are and where we might be going.

The greatness of Her is not that it's a story about relationships that explains technology; it's that it's a story about technology that explains relationships.
