A moving story about immigration and lose of family. It feels realistic, not Hollywood.

This very good but slow moving independent film was written and directed by Tom McCarthy (Spotlight, The Station Agent, Win Win). The incredible Richard Jenkins plays Walter Vale, a bored and lonely professor whose life is forever changed by a new friend. The Visitor is rated PG-13 for brief strong language.

Great movie. Lots of wonderful djembe drums. I like the acting of everyone. I kinda wish there hadn't been the immigration thing, because that's the end of the drums, for the most part.

there should be part two. this movie ends in the middle of his development and romantic thread cut short.

If you liked The Station Agent, this is another sensitive and thought-provoking film by director Tom McCarthy.

Rated 6/10.

Great casting and acting, but I found it to be too bourgeois-- where in pricey midtown Manhattan would a new landlord illegally rent out for cheap an all ready pricey rented flat to two illegals for hardly any money, and worse was with this film. I could not finish watching it.

Tarek Khalil: Oh s**t! We have to get home! Zainab's gonna kill me, I'm on Arab time again.
Prof. Walter Vale: What is "Arab time"?
Tarek Khalil: It means I'm late by an hour. All Arabs are late by an hour, it's genetic, we can't help it.
