Our movie of the week has been somewhat neglected of late. This week "Arrival". I re-watched this on Wednesday and I have to say I love it. Not your usual sci-fi fare, and I do believe that Denis Villeneuve is the best director working today.
Linguistics professor Louise Banks (Amy Adams) leads an elite team of investigators when gigantic spaceships touch down in 12 locations around the world. As nations teeter on the verge of global war, Banks and her crew must race against time to find a way to communicate with the extraterrestrial visitors. Hoping to unravel the mystery, she takes a chance that could threaten her life and quite possibly all of mankind.
