Science fiction has never been my cup of tea. For a reason I can't remember, I decided to watch this one and was absolutely blown away. It's the kind of experience that leaves you motionless at the end, making you question and re-evaluate and wonder. The plot centers on communicating with aliens, but it's really all about true human 'being' in the world and connection with others that transcends borders (which I think is what good science fiction is supposed to be). It went from a movie I always passed over to one of my all-time favorites in 116 minutes.
