4.0 out of 5 stars Enthralling tale of one woman's adventure into space travel, 10 Feb. 2002
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Contact (Special Edition) [1997] [DVD] (DVD)
This must be Jodie Foster's finest film role. she plays a gritty, doggedly individual astronomer seeking life on other planets. Familiar scenario? Not the way this unfolds. Step by step she discovers an apparent way to travel to the star Vega. Political and religious factions hamper and cross her every step of the way - but she has a hidden benefactor who helps her achieve her desire. Central to this film is the dilemma of believing science or religion, which for her is agonisingly pinpointed by falling in love with a priest. The visual effects in this film are stunning, the plot ever self-renewing.
Drawbacks? Some of the dialogue is barely audible, making it advisable to use subtitles, and the Extra Features are poor. Nevertheless a marvellous film, and a good buy.
