Directed by Robert Zemeckis. With Jodie Foster, Matthew McConaughey, Tom Skerritt, John Hurt. Dr. Ellie Arroway (Jodie Foster), after years of searching, finds conclusive radio proof of extraterrestrial intelligence, sending plans for a mysterious machine.
A fantastic movie with one of the best uses of a single shot / mirror scene with absolutely seamless cgi. I love the story but do feel the political stuff was a little heavyhanded, but if the last 4 years of American politics has proven anything, maybe Contact wasn’t true enough to how poorly things would go.
