Such a smart, cerebral kind of sci-fi movie.  Not just special effects, but a real story. You can actually believe the story line. Of course, it is aliens. Clever aliens. Like in 12 countries.  But are aliens ever good? Hmmmm. Like alot of savvy people know, in general, change can be more of a bad thing than a good thing. And alien appearances are change in the biggest way possible.  The movie is treated as if it could be true any moment. No attempt to really scare the audience. No War of the Worlds here. And Amy Adams is phenomenal. Your heart is a tad broken for her.  But you must pay attention- seriously, pay attention. It isn't a straight story line. Just a good story, well acted and well cast.
