THE PRECIOUS JULES centers around the seemingly perfect Jules family and their daughter and sibling, Ella Jules, at a time when special children were sent away to live in institutions. Over the years, Ella’s banishment is felt by every member of the family in a myriad of ways—and the secrets uncovered will continue to have ripple effects on each one of Jules household forever.
After nearly two hundred years, the Beechwood Institute is closing the doors on its dark history, and the complicated task of reassigning residents has begun. Ella’s aging parents have requested that she be returned to her childhood home, much to the distress of Ella’s siblings, but more so to Lynetta, her beloved caretaker who has been by her side for decades. The five adult Jules children, haunted by their early memories of their sister, and each dealing with the trauma of her banishment in their own flawed way, are converging on the family home, arriving from the far corners of the country—secrets in tow—to talk some sense into their parents and get to the root of this inexplicable change of heart.

The Precious Jules examines the thin line between selfishness and what passes for love. This family story asks what is best for one child in light of what is perceived as the greater good and what is the collective legacy of buried family secrets, shame, and helplessness?

The Precious Jules is a deeply felt family narrative that will make you fall in love with these flawed and imperfect characters standing on the threshold of an awakening they never expected.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
