ALIENS ABDUCTED MY PARENTS AND NOW I FEEL KINDA LEFT OUT
Narrative; 2023; USA; 86-minutes; Jake Von Wagoner
Teenage aspiring journalist Itsy is miserable when her family moves to the small town of Pebble Falls. Among the new challenges — a fixer-upper house and unfriendly high schoolers, to name a few — Itsy meets Calvin, her strange, space-obsessed neighbor and classmate. Itsy befriends Calvin in hopes of writing an exposé on the oddball for a summer internship back in New York City, but she soon discovers that the amateur astronaut has an out-of-this-world secret. Calvin believes his parents were abducted by aliens, and it’s his mission to find and join them in outer space. As they endeavor to uncover the truth, the pair of outsiders foster a surprising and heartwarming friendship. Starring: Will Forte ("MacGruber") and Elizabeth Mitchell ("Lost"), this wild and wonderful family film world premiered at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival before making its way directly to The Emerald City.
