It was a live-action movie for kids involving this alien boy who got sent down to earth. It looked like it was made in the 70s or 80s, maybe the 90s but that’s a stretch. I remember the alien boy looked just like a bald little kid with pointy ears. I don’t remember how he got to earth, but all I remember is that he made some human friends his age who tried to help him get back to his home planet. They learned that they could attract the attention of his alien species or something by hanging crystals in places like on their house, and they ultimately succeeded.
Nothing pops up when I search for “70s kids movie about alien boy with crystals” or any other key words so I’m at my wits end. My parents rented this for my sister and I in like, 2004 or 2005 or something. I’d appreciate it if anyone could help me locate this movie!
