The Visitor

Quick mention for The Visitor, a sweet and understated drama in which Richard Jenkins plays a becalmed middle-aged academic who gets a new sense of purpose after he finds two illegal immigrants living in his New York apartment. Jenkins delivers volumes of pathos despite hardly varying his facial expression and having few lines of dialogue longer than “that’s OK”, and the narrative carefully avoids overly contrived conflict. Thanks very much Jack for the recommendation!
