In the night skies over Indiana, cable worker Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss) has an extraordinary encounter with a strange spacecraft. Desperate to understand what he experienced, he finds an ally in Jillian Guiller (Melinda Dillon), a single mother who believes her son has been abducted by extraterrestrials. Their quest culminates in a remote Wyoming rendezvous and the remarkable discovery that we are not alone in the universe. With revolutionary visual effects and an unforgettable John Williams score, this sci-fi blockbuster from Steven Spielberg was nominated for eight Academy Awards. (Steven Spielberg, 1977, PG, 137 min.)
