JULES is a quiet, profound film about the complexities of aging cleverly presented as a science fiction comedy. Milton (Ben Kingsley) leads a life dictated by routine; he makes the same complaints to his city council, takes the same routes home, and has the same scheduled visits from his daughter – until a UFO lands in his backyard.

What follows is a heartwarming and heartbreaking comedy about friendship, loneliness, and change. The movie is funny, but I wouldn’t describe it as an easy watch. If you’re in the mood for an off-beat, quirky, odd dramedy, JULES is for you.

JULES is playing in select theaters or is available to buy wherever you get your movies.
