Would you recommend the Contact [DVD] [1997] [Region 1] to a friend? YES
Pros: Intelligent deals issues of science and religion in personal manner
Cons: the time frame the story takes place in is hard to believe is so short
Purchased From: grocery store years ago as a VHS
Review: Great performances by Jodi Foster, Mathew McConahey and a first rate supporting cast are very well showcased by a entirely believable well written script as well as highly expert scene productions and special effects.
The story revolves around a young ambitious astronomer keenly driven to seek intelligent life signs in the universe from a strictly scientific point of view.
She meets a young religiously dedicated but non-sectarian minister, and in the context of a developing romantic relationship debate the existence of God and the place and use (or misuse) of science in relation to both God and man.
The film explores multiple philosophical points of view while maintaining a highly engaging and entertaining level of action and relationships.
It is a terrific medium for sci fi fans, action fans, and those who like a truly well crafted multifaceted relationship movie. Enjoy.
