A troubled child summons the courage to help a friendly alien escape Earth and return to his home world.
Steven Spielberg shot most of the film from the eye-level of a child to further connect with Elliott and E.T.
Michael: Oh, great.
Steve: So you got an arrow right in your chest.
When E.T. is walking outside during Halloween, the eye holes on his sheet are far apart and only one is matched up to his eyes. However, the shots of what E.T. is seeing through his sheet show the two eye holes lined up close together.
In the 2002 special edition release, the movie opens with a sillouette of E.T. in basket with Elliot on bike flying in front of the Universal logo.
