A linguistics professor is tasked with interpreting the language of mysterious alien visitors.


Why watch this film?

Director Denis Villeneuve uses science fiction and the overdone plot of "aliens arriving on Earth" to make a movie that doesn't look outward, but inward. The feeling is amplified by Amy Adams' powerful performance. Don't like aliens? Don't worry: here they are just an excuse for a larger and more important discussion than whether or not there is life out there.
