CO­COON (1985) ONE, 8.30PM, PG, SCI-FI

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGH­LIGHTS -

An ex­cep­tional cast of old pros make for a for­mi­da­ble en­sem­ble in this shame­lessly feel-good cel­e­bra­tion of life from di­rec­tor Ron Howard. This E.T.- like fa­ble about benev­o­lent alien vis­i­tors re-in­vig­o­rat­ing the lives of a group of Florida re­tirees is sim­ple and sen­ti­men­tal sto­ry­telling. What sets it apart, though, is that in­de­fin­able sense of won­der and magic that very few films could ever hope to con­jure. ★★★★
