ARRIVAL proposes that when aliens visit Earth, our ability to communicate with them is essential. Enter Amy Adams as a linguist who attempts to establish a language link and decipher the visitors' purpose on our planet. But in decoding the messages, she also enters into a foreign method of communicating, one in which the past, present, and future become fused. This science fiction film unravels at its own deliberate pace and provokes interesting ideas for those who like a little meat with their alien invasion films. Jeremy Renner co-stars and the film received eight Oscar nominations, winning for Best Sound Editing.
