After a gentle alien becomes stranded on Earth, the being is discovered and befriended by a young boy named Elliott (Henry Thomas). Bringing the extra-terrestrial into his suburban California house, Elliott introduces E.T., as the alien is dubbed, to his brother and his little sister, Gertie (Drew Barrymore), and the children decide to keep its existence a secret. Soon, however, E.T. falls ill, resulting in government intervention and a dire situation for both Elliott and the alien. . Steven Spielberg’s favourite film he ever made.
“It remains a classic – undamaged by cosmetic changes, and with power enough to overcome the impact of a hundred crappy telephone commercials”. – James White, Empire
