This is important… this means something. Steven Spielberg once again shows us our humanity through an extraterrestrial encounter in this groundbreaking adventure. Richard Dreyfuss plays an ordinary man touched by the extraordinary after a brush with a UFO. Obsessing over the skies and carving mountains out of potatoes, he loses himself to the phenomena along with countless others observing a rash of interstellar observations, including the great French New Wave director Francois Truffaut. With a Grammy-Award winning score from frequent Spielberg collaborator John Williams, and Academy Award-winning cinematography from the great Vilmos Zsigmond, it’s a spectacle for your eyes, ears, and imagination.
