Arrival



Why classify this as a girl power movie? Thoughts on the story based on the trailer: a woman (and by extension all women, since she is the only female character and the other characters are males) is portrayed as the communicator and the peacemaker, seeking to avoid war, while the men are belligerent towards each other and to the alien. Maybe the movie is not so dishonest as to make the cause of the (potential) conflict superficial, hatred based on just physical appearances alone (both other humans and the aliens).
