Living beautiful memories again
It was back in the year 1982 when E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial touched millions of hearts. Steven Spielberg's classic blockbuster is commercially one of the most successful films of all time. It's a story about the extraordinary friendship between the 10-year-old, idiosyncratic Elliott and E.T., the kindhearted alien who lost his way on Earth. Soon it's getting clear that the extraterrestrial visitor cannot remain on earth, and that's why Elliott and his friends help E.T. to escape from government agents chase in order to return safe back home.
