The Visitor 8

A sweet movie, perhaps a little overacted by Richard Jenkins, who didn’t have to be such a sad sack in his work but who, nevertheless, gave a haunting performance. Best were the starring roles given to the Arab son, Tariq, and mother, Mouna, both of whom lit up the screen. The immigration part of the story was all too real, as we know from experience with our own deported Jamaican housekeeper in New York; and the ending, with some shreds of hope in a sad and very frustrating situation, hewed closer to life than any other movie seen this year.
