Okay ... I remember seeing this movie quite a few years ago (10 years, maybe more) about an alien getting stranded on Earth. Before you guys start, it's not E.T. or Mac and Me All I remember is this alien was short, and I think he had big eyes. He was living with a family that was trying to keep him a secret. If I remember correctly, he dies at the end of the end of the movie. I think that someone shoots him, but I might be wrong. It's also possible that he wasn't stranded. Maybe he came to look around. I think he was going to leave in his own spaceship at the end. Hmmmmm ... I know it's a long shot, but hopefully someone has some idea of what movie this was. Thanks in advance!
