Young Elliott (Henry Thomas) discovers and befriends a stranded alien, hiding ‘E.T.’ in his suburban California house with the help of his siblings (Robert MacNaughton, Drew Barrymore). Elliott and E.T. form a special connection before the gentle alien falls gravely ill and government agents intervene.

This smash hit from Steven Spielberg won a raft of Academy Awards, including Best Original Score (John Williams), Best Visual Effects, Best Sound and Best Sound Editing. One of the most enduring and beloved family films of the 20th century, E.T. has captured hearts for decades.

‘Captivating, endearingly optimistic and magical’ – Variety
