The Visitor: 8 out of 10.
I hadn't heard of this film until its star, Richard Jenkins, got nominated for Best Actor at last weekend's Academy Awards. I've always thought Jenkins was one helluva character actor, but I had never seen him carry a film or show on his own. I had to see this...
It's a charming film with something to saw about the way America treats immigrants. Jenkins is excellent as a professor who seems to have emotionally withdrawn from the world. The film is compelling with a shoe-string budget and the single recognizable face. Catch it if you can.
