E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial

An alien botanical survey inadvertently leaves one of its crew members behind, who in short order ends up in the care of Elliott (Henry Thomas) and his family. But the mysterious government agents are close behind and all ET wants to do is get home. One of the most successful films of all time, ET showcases Spielberg’s familial obsessions, with the cute/ugly alien bringing warmth back into a home swamped by consumerism.

WINNER: Four Academy Awards, BAFTA (Best Score) 1983.
