Why watch this film?

"Based on a novel by none other than Carl Sagan (‘Cosmos’), ‘Contact’ is one of the great science fiction movies of the second half of the 1990s. As one might expect from a screenplay created from Sagan's ideas, the contact between Earthlings and aliens begins in a down-to-earth way, evolving into a mystery story - which speaks volumes about ourselves, humans. The direction is by Robert Zemeckis ('Back to the Future' and 'Forest Gump') and in the cast we have a masterful Jodie Foster, who was nominated for an Oscar and a Golden Globe for the role of the scientist who risks it all in search of proof of life beyond Earth.
