A new clever sci-fi classic!

For me this is one of the last years biggest surprises and one of the best sci-fi alien related movies (well it's more about humanity as you'll see). I was hooked into the story and couldn't believe how fast it passed. Movie asks big questions, gets you to think and feel. For me it was exciting, intense and fresh to watch. Performance from Amy Adams is great (once again)! I would guess it's not for mainstream viewers though. Not a masterpiece but still exceptional and a must see! 4+/5
