Trust me on two things:
1) Go and see this film
2) Go, knowing as little as possible. Don’t even watch the trailers – you’ll enjoy/appreciate it more. [Comments giving anything away will not get through moderation].
Anyone interested in philosophy, theology, science, etc. will find this film has layers – the the layers having layers.
Rotten Tomatoes gives it 93%: “Arrival delivers a must-see experience for fans of thinking person’s sci-fi that anchors its heady themes with genuinely affecting emotion and a terrific performance from Amy Adams.”
Robbie Collin: Arrival is an “introspective, philosophical and existentially inclined – yet unfolds in an unwavering tenor of chest-tightening excitement.”
Sorry. That’s all you are going to get from me.
