Close Encounters of the Third Kind Movie Summary
Close Encounters of the Third Kind begins with strange events occurring all over the world. People see strange lights and phenomena. The film focuses on a team of researchers led by Frenchman Claude Lacombe, an American Roy Neary, Jillian Guiler and her young son, Barry. A large UFO to the horror of his Mother abducts Barry.

He uses mashed potatoes, potting soil, and anything he can get his hands on to recreate his vision. (I think of this scene every time that I eat mashed potatoes.)Read the full summary
