In this charming tale of aging and kinship, Marc Turtletaub’s Jules is a heartwarming and amusing dramedy about finding the extraordinary in the ordinary.
Retiree Milton (Ben Kingsley) has a quiet life only briefly punctuated by town council meetings and visits from his daughter Denise (Zoe Winters). His days might be brighter if only he could convince his local councillors to add a crosswalk to a particularly challenging stretch of road in town.
Each day blends seamlessly into the next. until a UFO and its extra-terrestrial passenger crash-lands on earth, destroying Milton’s birdbath. Although initially reticent, Milton takes a liking to his new co-habitant. affectionately nicknaming him Jules. It’s not long before Milton’s secret is discovered by two fellow retirees: the sunny Sandy (Harriet Sansom Harris) and the curmudgeonly Joyce (Jane Curtin). Together, they form an unlikely alliance to protect Jules and help repair his damaged spaceship before the National Security Centre gets involved.
Though quirky and filled with clever high jinks, at its core, Jules is a poignant exploration of life’s later chapters. The film gently reminds us of the enduring bonds of friendship and the importance of cherishing the present moment, even in the face of the unknown.
Jules is a gem of a film that will leave you with a smile and a renewed appreciation for the beauty found in life’s most ordinary moments.
“[. .. ] Despite Jules being a threat to national security, it often feels as though Turtletaub would rather you be curled up in your seat with a mug of cocoa than on the edge of it.”
