About 15 or so years ago, I dimly recall watching a movie on TV about aliens, which really struck a chord, but I can't remember enough to google a name or anything more specific. The action takes place on Earth, perhaps in the USA. It was a live action movie, not animated.
It was about a family; the father (grandfather?) was an army pilot, and when he was flying, he was abducted by aliens (briefly, then returned, I think?). The (grand?)daughter is a little child, and her nanny is trying to teach her telekinetic abilities (perhaps a result of modifications done to the father?). I think I remember her also conjuring up a glowing orb between her hands. The nanny turned out to work for the aliens. There was also something about the government trying to chase/capture the family.
Any help will be appreciated!
