A linguist is recruited by the military to assist in translating alien communications.

The critical consensus

With emotional heft, big ideas and a mesmerising performance from Amy Adams, Arrival is a sci-fi masterpiece.

*****Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 10/11/2016

Denis Villeneuve’s thrilling sci-fi epic, in which a linguistics expert is called on to speak for the human race, is daring, clever and touched with skin-crawling strangeness.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 10/11/2016

The Earth may be standing still again, but Arrival is a fresh take on the cosmic- encounter movie that grips you with the strength of its ideas and the quality of its execution, then burrows deep thanks to its resonant themes and emotional richness.

*****Dan Jolin, Empire Online, 09/11/2016

An intelligent, eloquent and stirring sci-fi that grips from start to finish, Arrival is up there with the year’s best movies.

*****Matt Maytum, Total Film, 23/10/2016

You can pick holes in the plot if you examine it closely but Arrival is so well made and acted that you are willing to suspend your disbelief, engage your little grey cells and savour one of the smarter screen epics we’ve seen in quite a while.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 11/11/2016

Denis Villeneuve’s uplifting sci-fi drama about attempts to understand extraterrestrial visitors could be just the antidote we need.

****(*)Mark Kermode, The Observer, 13/11/2016
