The movie had been a delight and its popularity is quite staggering. But what really made it stand apart was the state of the art technology prevalent throughout the book. What could have gone wrong in a movie that relies on graphics?

Well, it was the sound that became the problem in this case. It wasn’t until the film was in its editing process began the filmmakers realized that something more was needed to showcase the relationship between Samantha and Theodore, played by Joaquin Phoenix.

Although Samantha Morton was already giving her voice for Samantha, it was decided to use Scarlett Johansson. The sequences with the voice of Samantha Morton were not exactly what they had in mind and so Scarlett was set to dub in Samantha Morton’s lines.

Scarlet had met the filmmakers during the filming of ‘Lost in Translation’ and so she agreed to do the part and what a good thing that she did. If only we had a computer with Scarlett Johansson’s voice as the operating system. That sounds too good to be true though. Well, never mind.
