2016. Directed by Denis Villeneuve. Written by Eric Heisserer & Ted Chiang (adapted from Chiang’s book “The Story of Your Life”).
A gorgeous sci-fi movie that explores more the depths of humanity, and less the extra-terrestrial beings with which linguist Dr. Louise Banks (Amy Adams) seeks to communicate. And for the first time, aliens aren’t just beings with human features, but of an entirely different kind. Villenueve’s smartly-sequenced storytelling is full of twists and turns to the very end. Thumbs up 👍
