Arrival

  • Starring: Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Forest Whitaker
  • Director: Denis Villeneuve
  • Genre(s): Sci-Fi, Drama, Mystery, Thriller
  • Rating: PG-13
  • Running Time: 116 min.

When mysterious spacecraft touch down across the globe, an elite team is put together to investigate – including language expert Louise Banks (Amy Adams). Mankind teeters on the verge of global war as everyone scrambles for answers – and to find them, Banks will take a chance that could threaten her life, and quite possibly humanity.

"Arrival is really Adams' film, a showcase for her ability to quietly and effectively meld intelligence, empathy and reserve. "
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"Arrival works as mainstream entertainment, but includes hallmarks of the “2001: A Space Odyssey”/“Silent Running” era of artist-driven science fiction. It has Hollywood stars, but makes great effort to strip them of any false glamour. The film is tightly calibrated, but leaves things open to interpretation, for discussion on the ride home and beyond."
- Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
"Although Arrival is about first contact with extraterrestrials, it says more about the human experience than the creatures from another world. This is a singularly powerful movie, without question one of 2016’s best."
- James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"An intelligent, eloquent and stirring sci-fi that grips from start to finish, Arrival is up there with the year’s best movies."
- Matt Maytum, Total Film
"[A] truly remarkable film."
- Sarah Kurchak, Consequence of Sound
"The extraordinary success of Arrival is that it combines its bravura style and grand sci-fi questions with tremendous emotional intelligence and a heart so full it’s ready to burst."
- Bryan Bishop, The Verge
"Arrival, the shimmering apex of Villeneuve’s run of form that started back in 2010 with “Incendies,” calmly, unfussily and with superb craft, thinks its way out of the black hole that tends to open up when ideas like time travel, alien contact and the next phase of human evolution are bandied about. "
- Jessica Kiang, The Playlist
"Anchored by an internalized performance from Amy Adams rich in emotional depth, this is a grownup sci-fi drama that sustains fear and tension while striking affecting chords on love and loss."
- David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
