Arrival has A linguist that leads a team of investigators to try and communicate with extraterrestrial visitors.
Who is the linguist that communicates with the extraterrestrial?
Dr. Louise Banks (Amy Adams) helps the team to investigates any threat that could threaten her life, and quite possibly humanity. As mankind teeters on the verge of global war, Banks and the team race against time for answers and the extraterrestrial could possibly communicate that.
Arrival is more about how we approach what terrifies us?
What is important is to communicate through language and not action? This movie is designed to simultaneously challenge viewers, move them and get them talking. For the most part, it succeeds. Amy Adams gives a confident, affecting performance as Louise, a linguistics expert brought in on the day that 12 unidentified flying objects enter Earth’s orbit.
Dr. Louise Banks also has darkness in her life.
The opening scenes detail the birth, brief life and death of a child. Throughout, Adams imbues Louise with a quiet, effective emotional undercurrent that’s essential to the film’s success. Villeneuve’s vision is not particularly CGI-heavy, allowing Adams to work in a way that feels relatable. Arrival takes this a step further. It suggests that language rewires the brain in certain ways — which we know to be true — but can do so in a way that allows the language user access to other dimensions.
