My boys were literally sat on the edge of their seats
watching this film. At first I thought

Plus Echo is a big highlight of course, both my boys
wanted to find their own mysterious being after watching the film. Although eldest was adamant he did not want

try and evade the “construction workers” (government officials!) and save the
charming little alien.
