Cinematique: "Her" (New Time, 7PM)

Feb 25, 2014

This unconventional love story from Spike Jonze received five Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Screenplay, and won the Golden Globe for Best Screenplay. In the not so distant future, Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix), a lonely writer, purchases a newly developed operating system designed to meet the user’s every needs. To Theodore’s surprise, a romantic relationship develops between him and his operating system.

Don't miss Joel and Ethan Coen's wonderful new film. Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) is at a crossroads. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he's struggling to make it as a musician. Llewyn’s misadventures take him from the Village to an empty Chicago club—on an odyssey to audition for a music mogul—and back again.

Brimming with music performed by Isaac, Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan, as well as Marcus Mumford and The Punch Brothers, Inside Lllewyn Davis is infused with the transportive sound of another time. (R, 1hr, 45 min)
