Apartment block tenants seek the aid of alien mechanical life-forms to save their building from demolition. From Academy Award® winner Steven Spielberg comes this delightful fantasy about never giving up on your dreams. When a real estate developer tries to get rid of the last five tenants of a derelict tenement building, they need nothing short of a miracle to stay off the streets. But hope does arrive, in the form of tiny extraterrestrial beings that glide in through an open window. These intergalactic visitors may not speak the same language as the humans who find them, but they may be the solution to keeping everyone in their homes. Starring Hume Cronyn, Jessica Tandy and Elizabeth Peña, it’s a whimsical, funny and heartwarming journey the whole family can enjoy. After their apartment building is bought by an unscrupulous developer, an older couple faces eviction until tiny robotic aliens arrive to help.
