“I would like to go back to being your wife,” Mae Whitman says in an exclusive clip from Operator, a new film starring the Parenthood actress and Silicon Valley’s Martin Starr. “And not your science experiment.”
The movie follows a computer programmer (Starr) who enlists his wife, a hotel concierge with an exceptionally soothing demeanor (Whitman), to help create a new voice for his company’s automated call system. It’s fun at first — until Joe starts favoring the robotic, pre-recorded version of Emily over the real her.
In Her, Joaquin Phoenix’s character grows attached to a bodiless voice. In the upcoming Operator, Martin Starr’s character, Joe, also grows attached to a bodiless voice — the big difference, though, is that this voice is a replica of his (living, breathing) wife’s (Mae Whitman).
