It was about some sort of aliens trying to enter earth. I was watching it on and off on TV so couldn't find more details.
They were broadcasting some stuff of what's happening on news or something. The lead actor's son or someone was watching it and seeing what was happening and was pretty freaked out. One of the scenes on TV was about how someone recorded a bird flying in mid air and stopped in the middle and fell down straight. He said this almost word for word "It was as if there was an invisible wall over there".
There were 2 kids, a girl around 6 and a boy around 8. The boy was reading some sort of book where they talked about aliens. He was taking about how there were 2 options with alien invasion if they came for resource. They invade, we win, and they come back 100 or 1000 years later. Or we lose. He also talked about how they will not do air strikes too much since they wouldn't want us to do nuclear attacks and make the planet useless.
This part is really fuzzy to me. The actor looked a little like Robert de niro but I don't think he was. I might have even gone crazy and he looked nothing like him.
