Him & 'Her'Him & ‘Her’

Director Spike Jonze has made the weirdest, most timely romance of the year—in which Joaquin Phoenix’s character falls in love with an operating system. And, as with so many love stories, the making of the movie was equal parts turbulence and passion.

    The Democratic convention began in an atmosphere of nervousness, as polls showed that the RNC's seemingly disastrous orgy of plagiarism, hate, and rambling celebrity has-beens somehow lifted Donald Trump into the lead.

Apparently so. The first batch of post-convention polls universally shows Trump making gains.

    After last week's Republican National Convention — with its disorganization and Mad Max vision of America — it seemed like the Democratic National Convention would be a comparatively boring affair.

    So it’s Tim Kaine after all as Hillary Clinton’s running mate: the “safe” and “boring” choice who clearly benefited from a high comfort level with the presumptive nominee and her husband, and energetic lobbying from their mutual friend, Terry McAuliffe, the current governor of Virginia.
