Arrival is worth seeing at least for the example of what a film should look like creatively. It is wonderfully shot and the pacing is perfect. As for the story… it was an interesting take on the Alien invasion concept and had a strong moral underpinning it, but I’m not sure it executed the plot correctly. There were quite a few times when the choices made by characters and the motivations in the sub plot were completely illogical and pushed against the main narrative.
