With the mention of aliens and liguistics in the plot introduction paragraph, along with an intruguing cover, I decided to give Arrival a try. Amy Adams is the leading actress combined with supporting co-stars Forest Whitaker and Jeremy Renner. I indentified closely to this story having taught English in foreign countries to young learners and young adults who had no introduction or beginner knowledge of the English language and the same vice versa to their language. We often looked at each other overwhelmingly as extra-terrestrial, but approached communucation in similar ways. There is much more to this movie then simple concepts of what to do if spaceships landed on earth and how to avoid risky encounters. It conceptualizes grieving in your work to connect beyond what your company or coworkers can understand to approach a problem you individually may have been chosen to solve.

Thanks again EPIX on The Roku Channel trial.
