Contact - The Movie (Robert Zemeckis, 11 July 1997)

"I can confirm sidereal motion, Dr. Arroway."
Carl Sagan (from Contact, October 1985)

We wanted to show a woman who was courageous, not in the way of being chased by the giant reptile and somehow managing to clutch a dagger and fight back, but a woman who was a hunter herself, who was hunting for information, hunting for insight, hunting passionately to find out how nature is put together.
Ann Druyan
