(2016) Directed by Denis Villeneuve. Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Forest Whitaker. (116 min.) PG-13

A breathtaking alien-invasion movie in which introspection replaces destruction, and an intuitive linguist makes first contact, iPad to tentacle. The Cold War sparked a cycle of fearful films about intruders on Planet Earth; this film proposes that empathy is the most powerful weapon of all.

“Like all the best sci-fi, it has something pertinent to say about today’s world; particularly about the importance of communication, and how we need to transcend cultural divides and misconceptions if we’re to survive as a species” (Empire magazine).
