A linguist is recruited by the military to assist in translating alien communications.
I LOVED that this was a cerebral kind of drama instead of an actiony blockbuster. The whole thing kind of hangs on Amy Adams' performance, which was a steady low-key intensity that kept me fascinated throughout the entire film. The movie explores the concept of how understanding those who are different than us can mean the difference between destruction and exaltation. More movies like this, please!
