I’ve saw this face in person today. Not Joan Blondell (in Miss Pinkerton 1932) but it was the same face.

It was on this day in 1895 that Auguste and Louis Lumière opened the first movie theater at the Grand Café in Paris.
Thomas Edison and others were also working on various moving picture devices at the time, but most of those other devices could only be viewed by one person at a time.
The Lumières were the first to project moving pictures on a screen, so that they could be viewed by a large audience.

So, he’s basically in love with Siri?

Set in Los Angeles, in the near future, Her follows Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix), a complex, soulful man who makes his living writing touching, personal letters for other people. Heartbroken after the end of a long relationship, he becomes intrigued with a new, advanced operating system, which promises to be an intuitive and unique entity in its own right.

Upon initiating it, he is delighted to meet “Samantha,” a bright, female voice (Scarlett Johansson) who is insightful, sensitive and surprisingly funny. As her needs and desires grow, in tandem with his own, their friendship deepens into an eventual love for each other.

From the singular perspective of filmmaker Spike Jonze, Her is an original love story that explores the evolving nature—and the risks—of intimacy in the modern world.

The Way, Way Back
Over the course of his summer break, a teenager comes into his own thanks in part to the friendship he strikes up with one of the park’s managers.

Saw it. Enjoyed it.

It reminded me of MEATBALLS if that had been written by much better writers with a better director. Sam Rockwell is the BIll Murray character. 

Written by Jim Rash (love him on COMMUNITY too) and Nat Faxon. They picked up an Oscar last year for writing the screenplay for THE DESCENDANTS.
