Overview
Het opwindende avontuur van de dag waarop we contact leggen met buitenaards leven, wordt hier gebracht met een diep gevoel van verwondering en een overweldigende visuele 'schwung' die de uiterste grenzen van de ruimte en onze verbeelding aftast. Jodie Foster vertolkt de rol van de astronome Ellie Arroway, een vrouw van de wetenschap. Matthew McConaughey speelt de theoloog Palmer Joss, een man van God. Hoewel ze elkaars perfecte tegenpolen zijn, brengt de aftelling tot 's werelds grootste reis ooit hen samen als de hoofdrolspelers in een universeel drama. Krachtig, meeslepend en emotioneel...
'Contact' is een film die iedereen raakt.
