Amy Adams delivers a remarkable performance in her latest sci-fi movie Arrival, according to Variety. Starring alongside Jeremy Renner, the actress plays a world-renowned linguistics professor named Louis Banks who is in charge of interpreting the language of alien visitors.
Throughout the film, Adams’ character deals with her daughter's death. “Anytime you’re dealing with the loss of a child it’s a place that nobody wants to visit, especially a parent,” says Adams.
It was an emotional experience for her trying to channel the state of mind a parent has after losing a child. “The way I deal with it is that I get into a very meditative state, so I can access [the emotions], and be able to move freely in and out of it, so that I’m not stuck in it,” says Adams.
The five-time Oscar nominated actress was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday, Jan. 11. Jeremy Renner and Arrival director Denis Villeneuve spoke during the ceremony.
She received the 2,598th star, according to NBC Los Angeles.
