A young boy befriends a lovable extraterrestrial (who loves Reeses Pieces, no less) in this science fiction adventure for kids!

Fear of the unknown mixed with intolerance of the unfamiliar are at the heart of Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi family film about a lone alien stranded in an everyday town. When Elliot, himself a lonely and alienated young kid, finds E.T. (a harmless botanist on a mission from another planet) in his background neither himself nor his neighborhood will ever be the same. This discovery will ultimately offer valuable life lessons on confidence, friendship, family, loyalty, and loss for the boy.
