E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial

This award-winning sci-fi adventure film, originally released in 1982, has become a classic family movie. While visiting the Earth one night, a group of alien botanists is interrupted by an approaching human taskforce. In their hasty retreat, they accidentally leave behind one of their crew. The “little squashy guy” is perhaps the least threatening alien invader ever to hit the movie screen. He is found by a boy named Elliott, who lives with his single mother, older brother, and younger sister. As Elliott tries to keep the alien under wraps and help him figure out a way to get home, he discovers that the creature can communicate with him telepathically. The little alien uses junk he finds around the house to rig up a communication device to send a message to his folks back home to come pick him up, but will he be rescued before a group of government scientists find him? This film is rated PG.
