Synopsis

Hailed as “one of the year’s most intriguing dramas” (Claudia Puig, USA TODAY), The Visitor stars Richard Jenkins (Six Feet Under) in a “perfect performance” (Lisa Schwarzbaum, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY) as Walter, 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. Written and directed by Tom McCarthy (The Station Agent ), internationally-renowned Hiam Abbass (Munich) co-stars in “the year’s first genuine must-see film” (Ann Hornaday, THE WASHINGTON POST) about rediscovering life’s rhythms in the most unexpected places.
