ARRIVAL (2016) was recognized in the year of its release with an AFI AWARD, naming it among the most outstanding motion pictures of year. According to the official rationale, “signals cinema’s unique ability to bend time, space and the mind. Denis Villeneuve’s cerebral celebration of communication — fueled by Eric Heisserer’s monumental script – is grounded in unstoppable emotion. As the fearless few who step forward for first contact, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker prove the imperative for finding a means to connect — with awe-inspiring aliens, nations in our global community and the knowledge that even the inevitable loss that lies ahead is worth living.”
