Saw this yesterday. The camerawork is great and a big screen is definitely the place to see it. The basic thesis (we and space aliens won't understand one another, at least initially) is spot on too. It didn't press all the buttons for me - but I am slow, so I didn't pick the plot up completely (unlike Mrs VB, who had no trouble with it). And I'm always wary of what feels like a US world-view, which is that the earth's international tensions could be solved trivially if we all just talked more, as Americans do (I fear reality is actually more complex than that). All that said, I did enjoy it and would recommend it .
