Expert linguist Louise Banks is just arriving at work when she catches wind that several spacecraft have touched down across the globe. It’s not long before she is recruited as part of a team of experts attempting to make first contact. With her own life and perhaps the fate of humanity at stake, how can she communicate with these terrestrial visitors before earth the turns on itself? This intelligent, humanistic film “quests for connection on the nature of being, no matter where you call home” (Peter Howell, The Toronto Star).
