And we’re all coming home with this screening of Steven Spielberg’s 1982 masterpiece. Childhood favourite for some, timeless tale to (re)discover for others, no doubt it will be a pleasant surprise for all, with John Williams’ iconic soundtrack played live by the Luxembourg Philharmonic on the stage of the Grand Auditorium. Winner of four Academy Awards, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial is much more than a family-friendly sci-fi blockbuster. It is first and foremost a subtle parable through which to grapple with deep and essential questions about empathy, friendship and belonging. What if Spielberg’s endearing alien actually helped to make us more human?
