When an African-American alien fetches up in Harlem, the locals are initially wary of his inability to speak and general strangeness, but they're soon won over by his technical wizardry and adopt him as one of their own. But can they help protect him from the bounty hunters who are pursuing him? Making the most of its limited budget, The Brother from Another Planet is a wry and likeable movie about race and the value of community from director John Sayles - a hugely respected figure in American independent cinema.
In this tender and beautifully acted mix of sci-fi and romance, a peaceful alien crashes on Earth and has to assume human form to escape detection.
