Arrival, The Movie –“A Scifi Masterpiece You Won’t Stop Thinking About” (VIEW PREVIEW)




When mysterious spacecrafts touch down across the globe, an elite team – lead by expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams) – is brought together to investigate. As mankind teeters on the verge of global war, Banks and the team race against time for answers – and to find them, she will take a chance that could threaten her life, and quite possibly humanity.

The pacing is methodical, the story captivating, and filmmaking beautiful, according to the iO9 Review. You rarely have a clue where it’s going—but once it gets there, you won’t be able to get it out of your head.

The film is based on Ted Chiang’s Story Of Your Life, Arrival stars Amy Adams as Dr. Louise Banks, an international language expert who is called in to help translate the apparent language of a mysterious alien species who has peacefully landed 12 ships all over the globe, which has caused quite the international crisis, as you can imagine.



Bank’s is joined by a theoretical physicist named Ian Donnelly (Jeremy Renner), and together they engage the aliens to try to answer all the biggest questions: Why are you here? What do you want? Where do you come from?

Bradford Young’s cinematography makes everything feel ethereal, which draws the audience closer to the characters. Supporting roles by Forest Whitaker, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Tzi Ma give the subject matter additional resonance.
