Why does the movie Her (2013) use the word "Her" instead of "She" as title?

    Because it's about "her" not "she"?...it's the appropriate designation for a native English speaker. – Paulie_D May 20 at 9:05

    @Paulie_D That...depends pretty much on what you think the title is saying. Of course it's about her. But...the title isn't "About Her", it's just "Her" and for a single world without context "She" makes about as much sense as "Her" does (one could even say it makes more sense, being the nominative, which is probably what the question is trying to posit). But of course if you think that's what the title is saying, feel free to flesh that out into an answer. – Napoleon Wilson May 20 at 9:11

    Is there any particular reason you feel like it should be She? – Kyle Doyle May 20 at 17:31
  • @KyleDoyle No, I don't. I'm working one one of my project items which related to a conceptual analysis based on the semantic of certain movie title, hence the reason I wondered about the titled question. – KC_ May 23 at 8:41
