Synopsis

You may think of movie aliens as monsters out to conquer the planet - but Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters of the Third Kind might give you different ideas. The story follows an average family man who becomes convinced he's seen a UFO near his mid-American home. His family don't believe him - in fact, they think he's losing his mind. Eventually, his obsession takes over his life, and he sets off towards a strange rock formation hundreds of miles away that may hold the answers to his questions. Few people who see what that journey leads to will ever forget it...

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
