Us Rating: ***

This suspenseful, funny 1979-set sci-fi flick echoes E.T. (Steven Spielberg produced) as Joe (Joel Courtney) and his middle-school pals accidentally film a mysterious train wreck while shooting a homemade movie. Suddenly an alien threatens their Ohio town -- and the boys' friendship. A strong Kyle Chandler enforces order as Joe's lawman dad, while Elle Fanning catapults from child star to romantic heroine as a troubled teen.
