Roswell (1999)

In 1947, a UFO crashed in Roswell, New Mexico. The US government tried to cover up the whole thing and make it appear like nothing happened, but no one knows the real story - until now.

Now in 1999, the townsfolk still believe the many rumours regarding the crash. Three 16-year-old sophomores from Roswell High, Max Evans (Jason Behr) and his sister Isabel Evans (Katherine Heigl) along with friend Michael Guerin (Brendan Fehr), have grown up in the small town but all hold a deep secret - they are all survivors of the 1947 UFO crash which means they're aliens.

Their secret was totally secure and the group have been successful in convincing people they are average teenagers studying at Roswell High, but eventually everything has to come to an end and everything changes when the high-school's popular student, Liz Parker (Shiri Appleby) is shot.

During a violent outburst at the Crashdown Cafe, where she works, Liz (a girl Max has secretly loved since childhood) gets caught in the middle of it and is shot and left for dead by her assailants. Max is the first on the scene after the incident and finds her close to death, however he utilizes his special powers and heals her wound through the power of touch and saves her. Due to this action all evidence of her injury is removed thus leading to Max having to reveal the truth about himself and his friends to Liz.

Now the trio have to try and elude investigations Sheriff Jim Valenti (William Sadler) and the FBI and thus this fantastic romantic/drama/sci-fi story begins...
