Of all the compliments I can think to pay this film, the best is that Theodore works for a letter-writing company.From what I can gather, people provide him with personal information and then Theodore contemplates their photo, develops empathy with them, and writes love letters on their behalf.
If you look at "Nighthawks", you'll notice that none of its patrons are connecting, and outside it's still dark.
There's a moment where Theodore, afraid that someone he loves has gone missing, runs through the city streets and falls, and all the citizenry wrapped up in their technological cocoons stop to help him, asking him if he's okay.
It's a prime moment for satire, for Jonze to pound home the message that we're separating ourselves from one another--but instead, he goes in the opposite direction: We go inside because we crave connection, and although we recognize the dissonance in that, our need pushes reason aside.
