We present one of the most beloved children's film of all time. After a gentle alien becomes stranded on Earth, he is discovered and befriended by a 10-year-old boy named Elliott. Bringing him into his suburban California house, Elliott introduces E.T., as he is dubbed, to his brother, Michael, and sister, Gertie, and they decide to keep his existence a secret. Soon, however, he falls ill, resulting in government intervention and a dire situation for both him and Elliott.

Enjoy the original visuals of kids-on-bikes referenced in Stranger Things and the ever-so-cute performance of Drew Barrymore in her debut role.

Magical and moving, bring your hankie, it's a real tear-jerker!
