Tramp at the Door (1986)
This low-key Canadian drama stars August Schellenberg as Albert, a young farm boy growing up in 1930s Manitoba.

Gustave claims that he's a long-lost relative of Albert's family, a notion the boy takes with a grain of salt--at least until Gustave begins pulling off all manner of miracles.
