When a mysterious alien species unexpectedly lands on Earth in a series of giant pods, an elite team – led by expert linguist Louise Banks – are brought together to investigate. With mankind seemingly heading inexorably for a global war, Banks and her team struggle to seek out answers for what’s going on. However, doing that involves taking a chance that not only threatens her own life, but the fate of the entire planet. Based on a short story by American writer Ted Chiang, this science-fiction drama serves as an antidote to the increasingly bombastic world of the modern blockbuster, grounding its narrative in something much more real and earthy, if no less fantastic.
Infrequent strong language.
