    One of the best sci fi flicks in recent memory. Having a daughter a year after this makes this scene that much tougher to watch, but it’s also more beautiful now...

    there is only two movies of "aliens" i like... its the "SIGNS" (one priest that stop believing in god) and this one "Arrival" (a woman that can see the future) the funny thing is the "aliens" in this movies are just a background storie and not the main storie! its like two stories inside one movie!

    He’d say what he feels more often. He values honesty and openness. Which makes perfect sense as to why he’d be so devastated and leave her when he found out she’d been keeping her true thoughts secret from him since the beginning

    Obviously not the same thing, but I lost my kid sister 10 years ago in a car accident. She was 17. I'm 31 now and the pain hasn't really gone away much but I valued the time we had together. We are a very close family, Me, my 3 brothers and my parents. I don't think any of us have really gotten over it but we try day by day.

    See how she knocks on the window to call for Ian.. just like the aliens knocking the window in the spaceship to call out for her. Her window and the one at the spaceship represent the same thing, a window to the future.

    If anyone's interested in this film and the sci-fi theme of it, they definitely need to read slaughterhouse 5

    The film was boring most of the time but they did nail the ending.
    Denis is really good at endings.

    If the aliens gave her this "gift" as they called it cuz in far future they will need to help them....wouldn't she change her future cuz thats like very sad future 😭😭😭😭

      She could have chose to not have the child but she did not change it which is meant to show that she did not use the "weapon" for personal reasons and that her not conceiving was the same as her dying. I mean, theoretically, she could get the lottery numbers from a few days away but I do not think the weapon works that way. It is only meant to be used to save humanity. If the aliens had not come the World would have been destroyed by war and the Cephlopods would not be able to get help 3000 years from now.

    Honestly when I first watched this I was extremely underwhelmed. I didnt pay much attention to it I guess probably wasn't in the mood. Idk it just didnt stick with me. However when I watched blade runner 2049 and instantly fell in love with it despite not being the biggest fan of the original. I found out the director made this movie and many more that I've seen, all of which I absolutely love. So I decided to give this another shot and boy did it have an effect on me. It may be one of my favs from him.

    You know what I find so fascinating about this movie? Most movies involving precognition or time travel have one of two options: either you physically can't change what happens even if you try, or you can and it makes messing with time near useless due to the infinite possibilities. This is the only story I've ever seen the argument that even if you could change the future based on what you know, you /wouldn't/. Rather than having no choice or too many choices, it argues that humans would choose to keep the future as-is, pain, pleasure and all. I've never seen that argument anywhere else.

    Now, three space-related movies where the protagonist loses a daughter: Arrival, Gravity and First Man. Sadly, on First Man, Armstrong did lose his daughter Karen.

      Technically, Cooper in Interestellar also lost his daughter for decades and just to let her go again many years later...

    The movie is kind of confusing and hard to follow, especially if you’re not paying attention. But the way this scene wrapped everything up together in such an emotional and satisfying manner, makes the entire film worth it. When I tell you I cried.....

    I completely stunt by the ending. The whole story leads to the end which ends up being the beginning. Just like her daughter name and aliens language - a circular.

    Beautiful movie. Most people would think the title Arrival means arrival of the aliens, but it is a reference to the arrival of her daughter. This movie is about how a mother deals with the death of a child, much like Gravity.

    4 years ago I lost my daughter who was only 20. I watched this movie and it spoke of a profound truth I agreed with. When she said she would still live it all again despite knowing she was going to lose her daughter. I know what she meant. I too would live every day of my life again with my daughter knowing that I would lose her. I’d go through it all and what that told me is that the power of love is worth all the pain and that for all the darkness life brings u there’s light in there too and that it all is part of the tapestry and journey of life. She wasn’t cruel in her decision, it’s just she understood that Love was worth going through all that again, the love she shared with her daughter was so powerful it was worth even going through the pain again. Trust me she’s not selfish, I wake up every day living the pain of not having my daughter in my life but I can tell you 💯 without hesitation I would live it all again knowing the outcome to experience the love we shared.

    did you guys pay attention to her daughter’s name? “Hannah” if you read it backwards still is hanna which it’s what the movie was about, the circle words of aliens and the circle of life is the meaning of this movie

      And why a portmanteau also isn’t one
      Ditto why phonetically isn’t spelt “fonetikally” or something
