OF ALL Hollywood superstar actresses, Jodie Foster seems to bring the most intelligence to her roles. She is well-cast as the keenly sharp scientist who picks up what she believes is a message from distant extra-terrestrials in Contact (8pm Sky Premier).

The strong supporting cast features James Woods, Matthew McConaughey, John Hurt and President Bill Clinton (I kid you not).
