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.

Marc Turtletaub is an American film producer. He is the former CEO of lending company The Money Store. In 2000, along with David T. Friendly, he formed Deep River Productions to develop and produce feature films. At the end of 2004, Turtletaub, along with Peter Saraf formed Big Beach Films to produce and finance independent features and documentaries, based in New York City.

“This slight but engaging, even quirky little film, is a crowd-pleaser that presents Kingsley with a role that fits like a glove, and one we haven’t seen him often do.” ~ Pete Hammond, Deadline Hollywood
