Jillian is seeking her son, who went bye-bye with the alien ship. Roy's obsession with the UFO sighting drives his family away. Inexplicably drawn to Devil's Tower, Roy and Jillian realize that they're not the only ones who feel they've been called there. When the aliens appear, Roy boldly boards the ship in an intergalactic exchange program.
In the reissue, which added some new scenes, viewers get a glimpse of the inside of the spacecraft. This is a thrilling adventure story and a brilliant example of the art and craft of moviemaking.
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
The story unfolds with extraordinary power, involving viewers as much in Roy's inexplicable compulsion as in Jillian's search for her son. There's something very believable and compelling about the way that the aliens use music to communicate and to teach the people on earth. Spielberg creates a sense of wonder not just in Jillian's son Barry Cary Guffey but in the adult characters and in the viewers, making them children again, with the aliens as the "adults," who -- reassuringly -- look and behave like gentle children, giving us a sense of comfort.
Families can talk about the idea of life beyond our solar system in Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Do you think there are other intelligent beings out there? Why or why not? If so, what do you think they're like, and do you think they'll ever come to Earth? Talk about how aliens are usually portrayed in the movies.
What does this movie do differently? What signs do you get that these aliens will be benevolent? Was this movie scary? What were the scariest parts and why?
