I was talking with a Danish guy, he is 24. He said he and his brothers saw, when he was 4 or 5 years old (2000s) a movie with a blonde kid and he thinks his friend (he does not know if they were related) who was an old man and who looked like Ernest Hemingway.

Apparently in the movie there were aliens, and the old man had to face the decision whether to stay or go with the aliens.

It was not a comedy, it was a drama possibly. And he thinks that maybe it is American from the 80s, that you never actually see the aliens, and the old man says "shut up!" a lot, but that may be his 4 year old blurry memory.

I thought maybe Cocoon, which has lots of old men, but it does not fit the blonde boy description.

  • Hi there! That's some info already but could you and this guy please take a look at these guidelines, see if that triggers any more memories you could edit in? Every detail counts - the more info we have, the greater your chances of a successful ID :) – Jenayah Jan 18 '19 at 18:30

    Hi @Jenayah! I will talk to him later through chat (7 hours of difference!) but definitely, I will edit as quickly as I can. Thanks! – F.Esq Jan 18 '19 at 18:49

    It could possibly be the second cocoon movie, Cocoon: The Return. It has a child in it, although he is not blonde, and the boys grandfather that sort of look like Hemmingway is he shaved. – Bjorn Eriksson Jan 18 '19 at 19:41
  • Barry is a little blond boy in "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" but one could hardly classify Richard Dreyfus' character as Hemingway-esque, though he does choose to leave w/ the aliens (spoiler alert? lol) – NKCampbell Jan 18 '19 at 20:37
