"E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial," Steven Spielberg's first "small film," is a modern classic.
Forsaking the overload of special effects and high adventure that marked his previous successes to focus instead on a small story propelled by heart and imagination, Spielberg has made a film that will touch audiences for years to come.
Playing closely to the theme of "Close Encounters Of The Third Kind (1977)," "E.T." follows the warmly personal story of the magical friendship of 10-year-old Elliott (Henry Thomas) and an abandoned being from another world who seeks the youngster's protection.
