Product Description

Hailed as "one of the year's most intriguing dramas" (Claudia Puig, USA TODAY), The Visitor stars Richard Jenkins (Six Feet Under) in a perfect performance (Lisa Schwarzbaum, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY) as Walter, a disaffected college professor who has been drifting aimlessly through his life. When, in a chance encounter on a trip into New York, Walter discovers a couple has taken up residence in his apartment in the city, he develops an unexpected and profound connection to them that will change his life forever. As challenges arise for his tenants, Walter finds himself compelled to help his new friends, and rediscovers a passion he thought he had lost long ago. The year's first genuine must-see film" (Ann Hornaday, THE WASHINGTON POST) about rediscovering life's rhythms in the most unexpected places

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It is a risk because it's not well known and will get bad reviews from some with different tastes. I felt the character development was wonderful, and the freedom the main character found and was able to express by playing the djembe was inspiring. For anyone who has dreamed of breaking free from the mundane and into artistic expression, you will be glad you took the time to watch this. Although there were parts of the story that were not all uplifting, overall, it was heartwarming and hopeful.

I thought this movie was creative and surprising and heartfelt. I really enjoyed it. As well, it wasn't violent - as so many movies are these days.

This is a gripping story. It is very insightful of a person living in a little bubble and just passing through life, afraid to connect again. He has a surprise and becomes involved with others. Learns a lot about his country, the government systems and what it is like for immigrants. It is authentic and he is changed by his experience. A bitter sweet story of the life, taking risks and the different rewards which result.

Format: DVD
When Connecticut professor Walter Vale (Richard Jenkins) goes to stay in his long-empty New York apartment, he is surprised to find a young couple living in it. It seems Tarek and Zainab believed they were subletting the apartment when in fact, they were being scammed. Walter takes pity on them and lets them stay on for a while and slowly the three become friends. Then Tarek is detained by Immigration and a crisis ensues.

This drama centers around Walter who is newly-widowed, very depressed, and socially isolated. Jenkins captures his hopelessness well, but Walter is basically a very boring character. Jenkins was nominated for Best Actor, but I thought he showed no range of emotion at all. I didn't like Walter or care about him, nor did I have any empathy for the young couple in his apartment. All of the dialogue is delivered with unremitting melancholy and in such monotonous tones that I spent most of my time watching the clock, which never seemed to move.

The movie is tiresome and preachy and, worst of all, dull. Not recommended.
