Nancy Archer is a rich socialite who is unhappily married to husband Harry who left her once but came back to her when he needed money. It hasn't stopped him from continuing his affair with Honey Parker and Nancy knows it. After a confrontation at a local bar, Nancy takes off in her car and has an encounter with a large sphere on the road. There have been rumors of UFOs in the area but no one will believe her.

I love this movie for so many reasons,mostly for the fact that the heroine is such a breakaway from the embarrassingly weak women stereotype.Allison Hayes was the only woman who could give this film justice,but history's treatment of it is a fatal blow.How her character became a giant could have been done any other way,but thankfully they avoided the radioactive poisoning cliche.The special effects could have been better,though.She looks like an ordinary woman on a dollhouse set [in the long shots,she's transparent!].To suggest she was a giant,they could have used more underneath shots,after all,everyone would be looking up,not straight at her.Otherwise,this is a great film for any guy or girl to share and comment with to their significant other.
