* Batteries Not Included

A film by Matthew Robbins

After their apartment building is bought by an unscrupulous developer, Frank and Faye Riley (real-life couple Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy) face eviction. But the poor retirees and their neighbors receive help from an unlikely source — a clan of tiny robotic aliens who supply free electricity and harass the developer’s goons. This sentimental sci-fi drama was executive-produced by Steven Spielberg.
