The more times I watch _Contact_, the more I like Jodie Foster's portrayal
of radio astronomer Eleanor Arroway. (Since I have trouble pronouncing "R"
sounds -- from a childhood speech impediment I've never completely overcome
-- I find the name of that character particularly challenging.)
If only there were (more?) women like that in real life. (They don't call
it "science fiction" for nothing!)
Jodie Foster doesn't just play an atheist on film; she's apparently that way
in reality. Link to:
