A run-down neighborhood is being bulldozed by property developers but one block of tenants would rather stay put. When the developers bring in some heavy persuading tactics, the tenants (led by the ageing Rileys, played by Cronyn and Tandy) are thrown a lifeline by tiny extraterrestrial visitors.
A quaint and miraculous tale that hits most of its notes and keeps alive the charm of Close Encounters, Gremlins and, of course, ET.
