The Visitor

Rated PG-13 103 minutes 2008

An uptight university professor (character acting stalwart Richard Jenkins) finds a pair of illegal immigrants squatting in his New York City apartment, but instead of chasing them he lets them stay. The resulting whole-world secular epiphany is made tolerable — even heartwarming — by the playing of Jenkins, Haaz Sleiman (as a Syrian drummer), Danai Gurira (his Senegalese girlfriend), and Hiam Abbass (the drummer’s mother). And don’t forget the drums. Written and directed neatly by Tom McCarthy (The Station Agent) (108 min.).
