Arrival is a truly amazing science-fiction movie that stars Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and Forest Whitaker. Arrival is based off of a short story by Ted Chiang called “Story of Your Life.” This film follows the life of a linguist who was enlisted by the U.S. Army to discover how to communicate with aliens who have arrived in 7 specific locations on Earth, before the tensions led to a war. This movie is great because it plays with time and has a surprise ending.
