Finding love in the near future

Joaquin Phoenix delivers a gentle, thoroughly disarming performance in “Her,” a wildly inventive, scrupulously understated romance from Spike Jonze. The film takes place at a time that might be just around the corner, when our virtual lives have merged even more seamlessly with corporeal, real-world experience. Computer operating systems are in the throes of becoming exponentially more sophisticated. When Phoenix’s character, Theodore, takes advantage of the latest upgrade, he finds that his computer is now being run by a charming, Siri-like disembodied voice that calls itself Samantha (Scarlett Johansson). The DVD and Blu-ray (Warner, $29-$36) include making-of featurettes.
