The Reel Review
This untraditional sci-fi film stars Amy Adams as a renowned linguist helping the government learn why mysterious alien spacecraft have suddenly appeared across the planet, sparking a global crisis. Those expecting a traditional alien invasion sci-fi flick will be DEEPLY disappointed. This is a mindful head trip, exploring thought-provoking themes in the space-time continuum. Like the alien language puzzle that Adams’ character pieces together, at times it is tedious, but those who stick with the film will be rewarded with a deeper message that, like a final puzzle piece, nicely completes the picture. Adams is excellent.
