The first trailer for director Spike Jonze’s new movie, “Her,” shows a peculiar romance.

A lonely writer, played by Joaquin Phoenix, falls in love with his artificially intelligent operating system, voiced by Scarlett Johansson.

The result: a feature-length flirtation with Siri.

“Her,” which hits theatres November 20, also stars Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde, and Chris Pratt.
