Arrival

Sci-Fi Drama


 

The military recruit a renowned linguist and theoretical physicist to make first contact after Alien pods arrive on Earth.

"Arrival" is a captivating and perceptive drama of a modern-day close encounter, and unashamedly affirms that humans might not be the most hospitable of creatures. A chilling soundtrack hovers over the tense atmosphere, where military men and scientists struggle to universally collaborate, and tread the jittery line between breakthrough and threat. Stark visuals and affecting performances draw the audience into turmoil, placing us right in the middle of a human collective eagerly anticipating the agenda of Alien inhabitants. Deeply human.
