Jodie Foster is excellent in this provocative look at one woman's search for spiritual meaning, through her scientific obsession with the notion of extraterrestrial intelligence. Ever since she was a little girl, Eleanor Arroway's love for the stars moved her. Now, as a brilliant scientist, her single-mindedness alienates her from her superiors and threatens to destroy her career. Nevertheless, it is Arroway who intercepts a signal of genuinely extraterrestrial origin… a signal containing mysterious instructions. Thoughtful and deliberate, with eye-popping special effects at the beginning and conclusion, Contact is a true wonder for anyone who loves cerebral sci-fi.

Description

Devoted astronomer Dr. Ellie Arroway undertakes an emotional and spiritual journey after receiving the message she's waited for all her life--a mysterious signal beamed in from alien beings, who pass along instructions for building and piloting a craft that will presumably survive the passage from Earth to their home. While struggling to fund her mission, Arroway also struggles with her feelings about the nature of things, particularly after meeting a charismatic New Age believer who questions her disbelief in God. A deliberately-paced, meditative adaptation of the eponymous novel by Ann Druyan and "pop" astronomer Carl Sagan, who died during production. Academy Award Nomination: Best Sound.
