The Visitor

Carmella, Kelly and I just saw a great movie, courtesy of Netflix. The Visitor stars Richard Jenkins, Haaz Sleiman and Danai Gurira. Walter (Richard Jenkins) plays an unsatisfied college Professor, who comes to his NY apartment after a long time in Connecticut to find Tarek (Haaz) and Zainab (Danai) squatting. Walter becomes involved in their lives when suddenly Tarek is arrested and sent to a detention center. The movie shows the difficulties faced by illegal immigrants and their friends and family.

The Visitor premiered at the 2008 Sundance festival. Catch it if you can!
