"Jules" on AppleTV

"Jules" is a new science fiction comedy feature directed by Marc Turtletaub, starring Ben Kingsley, Harriet Sansom Harris, Zoë Winters, Jade Quon and Jane Curtin, now streaming on AppleTV:

"...'Milton Robinson' is a widower living on his own. He frequently attends city council meetings and receives help from his daughter. One day, a 'UFO' lands in his backyard and a small humanoid alien crawls out. He attempts to get help, calling the police and his daughter, and bringing it up at the city council meeting but is brushed off as senile. 

" Milton brings the alien, who is uncommunicative, inside and treats him as a guest, providing the alien with a tray of assorted food but discovering that the alien only drinks water and eats apples. 'Sandy', an acquaintance, stops by and discovers the alien, telling Milton that they should keep it a secret for its own safety. 'Joyce', another elderly woman, also discovers the alien. 

"The alien begins repairing his ship but does not appear to be making quick progress. Milton's daughter hears about her father's antics and schedules him for a mental evaluation where they are told that his faculties are quickly diminishing and that they should consider assisted living..."
