“A grownup sci-fi drama that sustains fear and tension while striking affecting chords on love and loss. ”~Hollywood Reporter

Aroview: Amy Adams plays a linguistics expert who is recruited by the military to determine the intentions of seemingly-benign alien visitors who have descended upon the Earth.

Taking a realistic, cerebral approach to the familiar alien-invasion scenario, the intricate script cleverly posits a theory that language influences how we perceive and experience the world, a concept that is freighted with some surprises and a rich emotional payoff. Together with some awe-inspiring images of alien life, the result is a contemporary sci-fi classic to file alongside the likes of 2013's GRAVITY.
