Arrival is a 2016 American science fiction drama film directed by Denis Villeneuve. The film is based on 1998 award winning novella Story of Your Life by Ted Chiang. The gorgeous and talented cast includes Amy Adams as the lead character and Jeremy Renner, Forest Whitaker, Michael Stuhlbarg are in supporting roles.Academy Award nominee, French-Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve delivers the most visionary film of his career so far. Gorgeous Cinematography by Bradford Young, the film is a work of art, the long wide scenes, the flawless close up shots and a great message about humanity within an appropriate running time, Arrival is an instant epic.
The plot is quite simple, there’s an alien invasion and the major nations around the world are trying to find the answer to the big question, ‘Why are they here?’Dr. Louise Banks (Amy Adams) is hired by U.S Army Colonel Weber, to decipher alien messages as she’s the best linguist. However, Dr. Banks recently had an ‘unthinkable loss’, which later forms the somewhat bickered plot, making it the most complicated yet fascinating factor of the movie. Amy Adams gives the best performance of career yet.
Arrival shows, quite magnificently, how language shapes reality. The film’s principle hinges on the idea, shared by several linguists and philosophers of language, that we do not all experience the same reality. We live on the same planet, breathe the same air – the pieces are the same, yet our perception of those pieces shift and changes based on the words and grammar used by us to describe them to each other or ourselves.Arrival is extremely well-designed, well acted – directed and well edited (implying to the ending) film. With complicated and impossibly unpredictable visuals that symbolizes the main point. Let’s hope it gets all the Oscars, the film has been nominated for.
