Arrival is a reflective experience of first contact with aliens who are not like us. These are aliens who, ultimately, want to do good, but the humans have to learn how to deal with this reality.

Amy Adams plays the linguist Louise Banks, and Jeremy Renner plays the physicist Ian Donnelly. They combine their robust talents to learn how to communicate with the aliens, and to try to convince their human superiors to do the right thing. Banks and Donnelly fall in love. She saves the world. The aliens depart in peace. Her life is changed.

Arrival (2016, rated PG-13, 116 minutes) is a movie you can enjoy, no matter how many times you watch it.
