The Visitor (2007)

Richard Jenkins (of Six Feet Under) teams up with Thomas McCarthy (director/writer of The Station Agent) to make a wonderful film about illegal immigration and resurrection.

Walter is a professor at a university in Connecticut. He's alone and he feigns work. When he becomes tangled up with a couple illegal immigrants in New York City, his life awakens to the beat of a drum. He discovers purpose and relationship.

There is nothing melodramatic about this story; it is emotional and raw.
