A grow up version of "Wall-E," "the Visitor" is a powerful drama that becomes an life lesson of knowing one self. about a professor, played by Richard Jenkins who find his life a bit boring, until came home from the college to find that strangers who moved into the apartment over a con man. Instead of kicking them out, he let them stay. (Sharing an apartment isn't new, that idea came from the 1960 movie "The Apartment. also, I believe that Jerkins' character is much compared with Jack Lennon's character in "the Apartment") that's when his life is changed forever by the illegal immigrants. Notice in one scene where Jenkins can play the drums better than playing the piano. I wish I could do the drums. It's a cool way of making music. I like the performance of Jerkins who went from a cold professor to a caring person. the film is directed by Tom McCarthy, whose last film is "the Station Agent" in 2003. this is his second movie and he really top himself. If that movie comes to town, I urge you to see it. You life might changed too.
