The story, about a harmless alien who befriends a young boy, beautifully captures the wonder and awe of childhood. And John Williams’s score makes it worth the retail price alone. This Blu-ray transfer from Universal Pictures is delightfully filmic, with a good grain level and sumptuous colours. It’s hard to think how it could have been given a better treatment.
