LAFCA just announced their 2013 winners, among them many films we’ve played or are playing, and one very lovely picture we are proud to be opening very soon: Spike Jonze’s HER, which they named Best Picture (in a tie with GRAVITY). They also gave it the award for Best Production Design and the movie was runner up in three other categories: Best Screenplay, Director and Score. HER is an original, moving, funny, beautifully realized knock-out featuring Scarlett Johansson’s best-yet peformance. And you never even see her face.
