Arrival

Denis Villeneuve (best known for such hard-hitting crime films as Prisoners and Sicario) directs this sci-fi mystery in which a humble linguist (Amy Adams) is recruited by the military to figure out what a bunch of strange alien devices are trying to tell us. This is thoughtful, smartly assembled speculation, laced with fear, tension and a major sense of discovery. 116 minutes PG-13.
