E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

One of the best sci-fi movies of all time, “E.T.” is told through the point of view of a child and the space alien with whom he forms a close and unbreakable friendship. We love that this movie was largely filmed from an adult-waist-height perspective, prioritizing the perspective of children. This movie pulls at the heartstrings of kids and parents alike, so be ready for a few tears when you watch. There are definitely scenes where kids will be scared, including when the scientists kidnap E.T.-and what happens to him while he’s being held by them-so use your discretion with kids under age 6 or 7.
