Arrival :- Watch Arrival on Youtube on Fire, When twelve mysterious spacecraft appear around the world, linguistics professor Louise Banks is tasked with interpreting the language of the apparent alien visitors. Louise Banks (Amy Adams) is a linguist who teaches at a College. One day, twelve giant spacecrafts appear in random locations across the world overnight. Louise’s skills make her a requirement for the U.S forces, who recruit her – and mathematician Ian Donnelly (Jeremy Renner) – to attempt to decode and translate the language that the creatures inside the spacecrafts are using in order to prevent a global war. Alien invasion films have, frankly, been done to death. Arrival’s script – penned by Eric Heisserer and adapted from Ted Chiang’s short story “Story of Your Life” – is ingenious in that it finds an entirely new angle to focus the whole thing on. Rather than start a war and depict the bloodshed and trauma of an alien invasion, Arrival focuses on the struggle to communicate with the creatures (dubbed “Heptapods”), and what the aftermath of this could lead to should it not go to plan. The whole thing is pieced together like a piece of art – the performances, dialogue, cinematography, soundtrack, screenplay, editing and direction all form one elegantly structured whole. It’s a simply astonishing feat of film making. Arrival finds strength in just about everything it is comprised of. It does this to such an extent, in fact, that it’s almost impossible to break it down into individual pieces. Amy Adams is superb here, giving a subdued but deeply moving performance. A lot of the film rests on her shoulders for its twists and turns to stick the landing, but she carries it without breaking a sweat. Never given any big Oscar-esque moments, Adams tells Louise’s story in her softest moments and through her body language. It’s an astoundingly delicate performance. Renner is also solid, and accompanies Adams nicely, even if he can’t help but feel woefully overshadowed. Louise as a character is the film’s most exciting element – a woman that uses her knowledge and skills to change the world in ways it has never been changed before, all of which comes down to language. When Arrival ends, you will spend hours thinking about yourself and the language you speak and use every day. The potential behind this story was astronomical, and it delivers in spades.
