The People (1972)

Directed by John Korty
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia

Young teacher Kim Darby accepts a job at a rural school in an isolated community. She suspects the kids are part of some sort of religious cult when they refuse to sing, dance, or even pick up their feet while walking. However, the truth turns out to be something far more provocative: they are aliens who have settled on Earth after the destruction of their own planet. They possess psychic powers which enable them to levitate and move objects. William Shatner is around to add credibility as a country doctor. Executive produced by Francis Ford Coppola, with music by his father Carmine. Comes across like a lost episode of Star Trek, only with a lower budget.
