E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Overview

Elliot (Henry Thomas) is a lonely 10-year-old boy who discovers a little alien and names him "E.T." A group of alien botanists were on Earth during the night to collect plant samples, but government agents forced them to flee, leaving E.T. behind. Elliot lures E.T. into his bedroom using a trail of Reeseís Pieces and gains his trust. Elliot introduces his 16-year-old brother, Michael (Robert McNaughton), and five-year-old sister, Gertie (Drew Barrymore) to his new friend.

Little do they know, the bond between Elliot and E.T. is more than just friendship, but also psychic as they both feel each otherís emotions and thoughts. But as E.T.ís health starts to decline, so does Elliotís and the siblings must find a way to save their alien friend and get him home before the government agents find them.
