Arrival, the latest film from acclaimed director Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Sicario), takes its premise from Ted Chiang’s award-winning science fiction short story “Story of Your Life.” When mysterious spacecraft touch down across the globe, the American government puts together an elite team to investigate. Mankind teeters on the verge of global war as everyone scrambles for answers–who are the visitors, why are they here, and what do they want? To communicate with them, linguistics expert Louise Banks will take a chance that could threaten her life, and quite possibly humanity. “One of the most satisfying things about Denis Villeneuve’s elegant, involving Arrival is that it is simultaneously old and new, revisiting many of these alien-invasion conventions but with unexpected intelligence, visual style and heart.” (LA Times)
