Arrival | ★★★★★★★★★★

Every once in a while a movie comes along that makes you really think. This is one of those movies. For sure it has a SciFi backdrop but this is so different than Star Wars or Star Trek. I felt that I really had to watch it in full before I understood the plotline. The story is so beautiful. So deep. So emotional. It hit me right where I live.

         "If you could see your life from start to finish, would you change things?"

This was asked my Dr Louise Banks, played flawlessly by Amy Adams, to Ian Donnelly, played by Jeremy Renner. It hits to the heart of the story and why I loved this movie so much. Arrival left me a bit uncomfortable with my level of questioning about my past choices. It helped me to see my life in a non-linear timeline.

The movie is certainly a creative investigation of the relationship of time to life. It is well written and well acted. I loved it and, on a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★★★★★.
