Jules Opening at the Cinema Art Theater in Lewes

Opening August 25, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater presents Jules, a compassionate drama that follows an older man who encounters the unthinkable on his land.

Milton (Ben Kingsley) 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. [2023, US, 90 min, Rating: NR]

Todd Jorgenson of Cinemalogue pens, “Ben Kingsley’s quietly powerful performance drives this slight yet affecting crowd-pleaser that puts a lighthearted science-fiction twist on its exploration of aging, mortality, regret, and loneliness.”

Screening times are 3 pm on Fri (Aug 25), 2 pm on Sun (Aug 27), 2 pm on Wed (Aug 30) and 5 pm on Thu (Aug 31). Admission is $9 for members, $11.50 for general audiences and $5 for students (student tickets available only at the theater box office). Purchase advance tickets online at www.rehobothfilm.com or at the Cinema Art Theater box office in Lewes.
