Event Notes

× December 18, 2023 - Jules
Presented by Reel Alternatives in partnership with the Algonquin Theatre

Jules follows Milton (Ben Kingsley) who lives a quiet life of routine in a small western Pennsylvania town, but finds his day upended when a UFO and its extra-terrestrial passenger crash land in his backyard. Before long, Milton develops a close relationship with the extra-terrestrial he calls "Jules." Things become complicated when two neighbors (Harriet Sansom Harris and Jane Curtin) discover Jules and 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. Ben Kingsley’s quietly powerful performance drives this slight yet affecting crowd-pleaser from director Marc Turtletaub that puts a lighthearted science-fiction twist on its exploration of aging, mortality, regret, and loneliness. The film effectively blends quirky humor with an underlying message about appreciating our seniors into a silly yet warm-hearted package. A modern day E.T. with a feel good story, just right for the Christmas season.
