We rented the movie "Arrival" this evening. I felt like it was going to be a "wifely duty" viewing, didn't expect to enjoy it at all, but it was really, really interesting. I have always enjoyed the acting ability of star Amy Adams, so she always catches my attention in any movie she is in, but the entire movie was so good. I won't say anything about it in case you haven't seen it, as it is difficult to say much without giving the plot away, but just be prepared that it moves slowly. Don't lose concentration though or the last 20 minutes could be confusing.
What an unexpected pleasure of a movie! Four stars out of five...one star lost for pacing that is just a bit TOO slow for my liking.
