Synopsis

If aliens came to save us, would we listen? That is the question posed by this much-loved science-fiction masterpiece. The well-intentioned Klaatu arrives on Earth in a flying saucer, accompanied by a huge silver robot, and tries to pass on his message of peace - but finds himself attacked and has to go into hiding. The message of the film - like Klaatu's - is not a very complicated one, but it does arrive more subtly than you might expect from an old sci-fi film (even one as good as this).

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
