Jules is a 2023 science fiction comedy film directed by Marc Turtlebaub whose film Little Miss Sunshine was nominated for an Academy Award.
The film stars Ben Kinsley (Ghandi) as Milton, a 79 year old widower who lives a quiet, life in a small Pennsylvania town. His life takes an unexpected turn the day a UFO crash lands in his backyard and out crawls an extra terrestrial passenger. Milton soon develops a close relationship with the alien he calls “Jules” (Jade Quon of The Hunger Games). Not sure what to do, he informs the police and his daughter about his discovery and even brings it up at a town council meeting, but everyone brushes him off as senile.
Things soon become complicated when his neighbours Sandy (Harriet Sansom Harris) and Joyce (Jane Curtin of SNL fame) discover Jules and before long the government quickly closes in.
“What follows is a funny, wildly inventive ride as the three neighbors find meaning and connection later in life – thanks to this unlikely stranger.”
