Curious what you thought of Arrival starring Amy Adams.

I thought it was very good. I have not read the short story on which it’s based, though. The science was mostly within the realm of possibility — setting aside the alien technology stuff. And the themes, especially the challenges of communicating with a totally alien species, did what good SF should do: make people think deep thoughts.
