    A stunning bio pic so understated in its delineation of the main characters that they become so true, so real, that the end of the film feels like a jolt to the present.

    Arrival 2016

    ★★★★½ Watched 23 Nov, 2016

    In the tradition of The Day the Earth Stood Still - a fav of my childhood, Tree of Life, Inception and Close Encounters - this is a gem of a film. It is what scifi should do and those reviews to the negative I think they are spoiled by blockbuster scifis and phony dystopias - not to mention those with no patience.

    ★★★★ Added

    What a lovely film, inspiring for me as a teacher, but I also loved the flow of time as seen in the changes to the village and its children. May seem slow to some, but the pacing was perfect for this film.

    The Diary of a Teenage Girl 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 06 Feb, 2016

    It was hard to watch a 13 year old have sex with an older man and to witness the many bad decisions she makes but the resolution makes it all worthwhile and important.
