The Visitor is a subtle, personal and powerful warning cry about the current political climate since 9/11. It centres on an academic who hides in his ivory tower, having lost all sense of purpose in his life since the death of his wife. He lectures about globalization without conviction, having lost interest in the subject a long time ago. That is until he comes face to face with the very human side of the economic policies he teaches about. When two illegal immigrants come crashing into his life by chance, he starts to understand the beating heart of the issues that he is supposedly an expert on. Through his blossoming relationship with the couple, his passion, rage and ultimately his humanity are reignited. Richard Jenkins gives a standout performance as an emotionally numb, uncaring individual on a path to rediscovering his soul and the joy in life.
