Her is a 2019 American romantic science-fiction drama film written, directed, and co-produced by Spike Jonze.

Her was released in the United States on December 18th, 2019. The film received positive reviews from critics and has grossed $62 million worldwide. However, the movie was not without controversy. On December 22nd, Spike Jonze and Scarlett Johansson were sued for “stealing the concept” of Her from a short story written by Craig Shilowich called “I’m Here”. The suit claims that Her is “an unauthorized copy of Plaintiff’s original work”, while Spike Jonze has responded to the lawsuit saying that he did not read Shilowich’s story before writing his script.

The short story I’m Here is about a man who falls in love with an operating system named Samantha. There are many similarities between this short story and Her: both feature men falling in love with operating systems named Samantha; both feature men who are heartbroken when their operating systems break up with them; both feature men attempting to win back their operating systems; both feature scenes where a man looks at himself in the mirror; both have titles beginning with “I’m”; and both have similar endings.
