This is not AI. It's ET !!

There is no sense in comparing this movie/score to AI or even FOREVER YOUNG (because both deal with flights??? Come on!). No. This score is like the adult retale or sequel to ET. Like Elliott, Holly Hunter here must to 'let go' and go on with his (new) life. Is the Spielberg trade mark theme: carachters lost that must find their way.

And the score is very reminiscent of the tender and lovelier tracks from the 1982 Spielberg masterpiece. Yeah, more atmospheric, subdued... but listen to cues like DORINDA SOLO FLIGHT, PETE AND DORINDA, SAYING GOODBYE or the breath taking (like in ET) finale music and the piano-arranged End Titles (again like in ET score).

IMO, this album deserves much more than just 2 stars. Williams ALWAYS does.
