VES Lifetime Achievement Award: Steven Spielberg

I was 11 and I saw it 20 times. In a row. Like I saw it at 2 p.m., 4, 6 and 8 p.m. in one day. I felt overwhelmed by the beauty. Even when I see it today, it hits deep in me and always makes me cry. It is such a beautiful love story between this kid and this totally, theoretically dangerous alien. It has to do with trust, with a strong sense of following our instincts and trusting in your love rather than what the other people are trying to tell you to do. It’s about a commitment of taking care of the person you love. You feel like a better person after watching that film.”
