The Visitor

A small movie called The Visitor. You might have heard of it because the lead role was played by Richard Jenkins, and Jenkins was nominated for an Oscar for his role. It is about a man who comes to his apartment in New York after a long time away (his wife died) to find two people living in his apartment. The two people are immigrants. Illegal immigrants.

What does it mean to be an illegal immigrant? In a country where we are almost all descendants from immigrants, who are we to say who is legal and illegal? It seems like such a strange determination.

Anyway, the movie is excellent. Watch it.
