E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial This Steven Spielberg classic redefined the sci-fi genre when it broke box office records in 1982. Considered one of the greatest family films of all time, E.T. tells the moving story of a troubled child who befriends a friendly alien, and embarks on a mission to help him return to his home planet. Boasting revolutionary visual effects, a heartfelt story and an eight-year old Drew Barrymore in her big screen debut. E.T. is a must see for not only young ones, but those who are young at heart.
