Arrival communicates to audiences the conflicting aesthetic between singular moments versus the journey in the form of science fiction. Denis Villeneuve crafts an emotional think-piece through the language of moving pictures.
Synopsis: “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.”
