John Carpenter
Karen Allen, Jeff Bridges

In this 1984 classic, an alien (Jeff Bridges) comes to observe life on earth and becomes stranded near the Wisconsin home of recently widowed Jenny Hayden (Karen Allen). The alien, otherwise known as Starman, clones the human form of Scott Hayden, Jenny’s recently deceased husband, and is told by his people that their mother ship will pick him up in three days at Meteor Crater, Arizona, more than 2,000 miles away. Over the three-day journey, a strange and wonderful relationship develops between Starman and Jenny—leading to a climactic rendezvous with the alien’s mother ship.
