I showed this to my daughter who is just about the same age as when I saw it for (and I havent seen it since) and she said she did not like it but was quiet the entire movie, not fiddling with her Ipad and asking questions so I think she really did enjoy it.
Me? Not so much. It is a glorious piece of filmmaking but I did find most of the characters, including E.T. quite annoying and the setting really made me want to rewatch Poltergeist.
