Full Plot Details

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.

Despite scorn from her colleagues, Dr. Eleanor "Ellie" Arroway devoutly eavesdrops on the universe. And then, one fateful morning, she hears a cryptic signal. As the world's scientists scramble to decode "the message," Ellie must struggle to become Earth's single emissary on a journey beyond theory or experience. Seeking support, she turns to her only ally - and former love - religious scholar and top-level government advisor, Palmer Joss. Separated by very different beliefs, they reunite in their passion for knowledge and truth.

A young woman who firmly believes in extra terrestrial life, receives a message from outer space. Decoded the message reveals the instructions on how to build a transporter.

Movie Reviews

Chicago Reader - 7.0/10 by Jonathan Rosenbaum Contact is so burdened with social, political, and religious issues that they infect and ultimately overwhelm much of the philosophical content.
Salon.com - 7.0/10 by Robin Dougherty Faithful to Sagan's brand of popularized science, the film never reaches beyond Hollywood spectacle and sentimentality.
Los Angeles Times - 9.0/10 by Kenneth Turan Contact is superior popular filmmaking, both polished and effective. But despite its success and its serious intentions, it's finally a movie where the storytelling makes more of an impact than the story.
Slate - 7.0/10 by Sarah Kerr When Contact finally comes alive, it leaves you frightened and thrilled and emotionally overwrought, as only a child can be. The rest is pandering.
Empire - 8.0/10 by Neil Jeffries Contact delivers on more than a pure visual level, reiterating the idea that greatest progress is made taking "small steps" towards enlightenment.
Chicago Sun-Times - 8.8/10 by Roger Ebert Sagan's novel Contact provides the inspiration for Robert Zemeckis' new film, which tells the smartest and most absorbing story about extraterrestrial intelligence since "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."
Austin Chronicle - 6.7/10 by Russell Smith Little effort is made to churn up romantic chemistry between Foster and McConaughey. For better or worse, director Robert Zemeckis sticks to Sagan's original vision for these characters, in which they're basically totems embodying both sides of a philosophical dialectic.
ReelViews - 10.0/10 by James Berardinelli Contact is that rare big-budget motion picture that places ideas, characters, and plot above everything else.
