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

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
