Last weekend I watched a beautiful movie entitled "The Visitor", starring Richard Jenkins (most of you would know him when you see him.. he's been in everything!)
Here's the quick synopsis:What follows is a heart-breaking testimony of immigration in the US. This movie is decidedly NOT a happy, feel-good movie... but is a wonderful character development piece as you watch the emotional growth of Richard Jenkins' character as he finds his inner passion for music, life, and friendship.In Connecticut, the widower and lonely Professor Walter Vale has a boring life. He teaches only one class at the local college and is trying to learn how to play the piano, despite not having the necessary musical talent. Walter is assigned to attend a conference about Global Policy and Development at the New York University, where he is to give a lecture about a paper that he is coauthor on. When he arrives at his apartment in New York, he finds Tarek Khalil, a syrian musician, and Zainab, a Senegalese street vendor living there.
I wouldn't recommend this for everyone, but it's a must see if you enjoy this type of movie.
