Plot

She’s known it since she was a young girl, when she would magically connect with distant voices on her father’s shortwave radio. She’s known it since college, when she chose the search for intelligent extraterrestrial messages as her discipline. She’s known it since she bargained for just hours a week of satellite time to sweep the heavens for evidence. And she knows it every time she stares at the countless stars dappling the infinite night sky… Something is out there. (Filmaffinity)

Movie Reviews

“While the movie doesn’t qualify as an awful waste of space by any means, it has so many creative black holes, you’ll have to weigh the entertainment odds before making this journey.” Desson Thomson: The Washington Post 

“[It] may be too long, too self-important and too “Gump”-like to be completely satisfying. But it contains elements that are so striking they pretty much redeem the film.” Mick LaSalle: SFGATE 

“Features heavy-handed exposition, repetitive, maudlin flashbacks, uneven performances and endless sermonising.” Time Out 

Awards

Nominated for Oscar: Best Sound.
