This Sci-Fi adventure from the mind of Spielberg about humankinds attempt to contact alien intelligence is still a classic. Roy’s humdrum life is thrown into disarray when an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) flies over his truck and even burns part of his face with its beaming light. Following this interaction, Roy becomes obsessed with finding answers to this foreign object and even starts seeing mental prophetic images of a disaster to come. His wife and children soon leave him out of despair from his new erratic behaviour...but Roy soon finds out he’s not alone in receiving these visions. There are others like him. But what do these creatures from outer space want with them all and will this curiosity lead them to the biggest discovery that man has ever made or to their extinction?
