Milton (Academy Award-winner Sir Ben Kingsley) is a small-town senior with a fading memory who leads a quiet life of routine in western Pennsylvania, until one late night when a loud boom wakes him from sleep. The next morning he finds that an extraterrestrial spacecraft has crash landed in his backyard, destroying his bird bath and stranding its alien pilot. Milton invites the alien (Jade Quon) into his home, and the two—each one isolated in their own way—begin to develop a rapport. Soon Milton’s neighbors Sandy (Harriet Sansom Harris) and Joyce (Jane Curtin) discover the visitor whom they’ve nicknamed “Jules,” and together the trio conspire to keep Jules’ presence a secret from the town and from the government that is furiously searching for the mysterious craft. They’ve seen the movies and they know exactly what happens to beings from outer space. The unlikely visitor’s arrival in their midst gives purpose and a later-in-life connection to these new friends in this funny, wildly inventive, and unusual sci-fi tale. PG-13 | 87mins
