Trivia

Not a plot hole nor character error: After an hour into the movie, he wakes his teacher at her house to discuss his math problem. He cites SETI that the alien 1,420MHz signal is the same radiation frequency as neutral hydrogen, the most common element in the Universe. Helping attempt to solve for the remaining two variables she points out that aliens would not know what a meter is. The aliens would also not know other human measurement units, such as second nor megahertz (1 million oscillations per second). Regardless how you may measure things, megahertz and seconds are irrelevant units of measure, as the signal is equal to and the same radiation frequency as neutral hydrogen, thus establishing a new units of measure.

You don't need to have passed basic math to enjoy this movie.
4 September 2018 | by johnnyrjSee all my reviews

There's enough of a story here to keep you engaged the entire time. The acting is good, the direction is good, even the math is interesting and I've never passed a math class in my life. Is there room here for a sequel without ruining the original story? I think so. If I had to make one criticism it would be that the movie was too short. I would have watched 3 hours of this if it had meant more details.
