Cast: Don Ameche, Wilford Brimley, Hume Cronyn, Brian Dennehy, Steve Guttenberg

Sentimentality and cheesy comedy make strange bedfellows in Ron Howard’s Sci-fi cult classic that brings youthful vigour to the minds and bodies of elderly residents in a Florida care home when their swimming pool is visited by aliens’ cocoons. Such is the effect that Don Ameche, who won an Oscar for his turn, is seen breakdancing. See it for the outstanding visual effects which won the film a second Oscar. MT

NOW OUT ON BLURAY COURTESY OF EUREKA MASTERS OF CINEMA 18 JULY 2016
