About the Movie

Walter (Academy-Award®-nominee Richard Jenkins) is a disaffected college professor who has been drifting aimlessly through his life. When, in a chance encounter on a trip into New York, Walter discovers a couple has taken up residence in his apartment in the city, he develops an unexpected and profound connection to them that will change his life forever. As challenges arise for his tenants Tarek (Haaz Sleiman) and Zainab (Danai Gurira), Walter finds himself compelled to help his new friends, and rediscovers a passion he thought he had lost long ago.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Richard Jenkins and "The Visitor" make lovely music together. It's a case of a veteran character actor slipping on a leading role like the most comfortable pair of pants in the world. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: McCarthy puts a mark on each film, identifying it as distinctly his own. A couple more like them, and he'll be knighted an auteur. – Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: This is a film of our times -- paranoid, heartbroken, disillusioned -- and the rare recent American movie whose characters react the way actual people might. – Wesley Morris, Boston Globe, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The Visitor gives viewers a perceptive, deeply personal take on the timeless immigrant narrative, in which the most epic journey is finally one of self-discovery. – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Sep 24, 2011
