The Visitor
Tuesday, September 30, 2008 at 8pm
Director: Thomas McCarthy, 2008, USA
Language: English

Walter Vale, a lonely widower, reluctantly goes to New York City for a conference to find an undocumented couple living in his long-vacant Manhattan home. He ends up befriending them, especially Tarek, a Syrian street musician. But, Tarek is profiled by the police and incarcerated, becoming subject to imminent deportation. With the appearance of Tarek's widowed mother, Mouna, Walter's connection to this family in distress deepens. A film of unadorened precision, The Visitor points the way for us to a place where tolerance becomes active engagement.
