Film review: Arrival (2016)

I finally made it to the cinema to see Arrival last night, a couple of weeks after it came out to great acclaim.

o curte de doisprezece pe doisprezece, plină de cărămidă și piatră veche sfărâmată, și înconjurată de spatele clădirilor. Într-o latură a curții, un gard de lemn nefinisat ascundea strada care flanca șantierul, iar deasupra gardului se înălțau zidurile vechi de cărămidă ale magazinelor și caselor antice. 30 more words
