Aliens have arrived! In pod shaped pods all over the globe! But they don’t speak English or Russian or Chinese or any language with an alphabet. So how can we communicate with them before we lose patience and destroy them????
Enter linguist Amy Adams, Earth’s only hope at understanding what their inkblot Rorschach test writings are trying to tell us, so we can determine whether they are friend or foe! But translating an unknown language is hard! And takes time! BUT WE DON’T HAVE TIME!!! Military guy Forest Whitaker is growing weary by the second!! CIA guy Michael Stuhlbarg is being a nebbishy pushy jew, pushing for non-Jewish results!! The Chinese General Tzi Ma wants to blow them back to where they came from! (maybe he should blow up all the Panda Expresses while we wait). But Amy Adams has help – helpful and handsome Jeremy Renner!
Where it goes from there is thankfully non-conventional, a little lot bit Jodie Foster Contact, a little lot bit confusing, and somewhat somehow not fully satisfying (to me), but finishes as a nice looking little alien movie that gives us confidence that Denis Villeneuve can make a good Blade Runner sequel. Long may you runner!
