The Visitor

Now you are going to have to rent or buy this one, but it is worth it. I bought it if you wanna borrow it. The lead, Richard Jenkins, nominated for a best actor Oscar plays a very low key college professor. He seems to be yearning for something after his wife's death. He becomes friends with two illegal immigrants after he finds they are living in his second home in NYC. The Visitor is just a great story that shows the other side of illegal immigrants living in our country. After seeing this one I only need to see Vicky Cristina Barcelona, The Wrestler, Rachel Getting Married, Revolutionary Road, Tropic Thunder and Frozen River. Am I gonna make it before February 22nd?  Someone needs to have an Oscar party..hint, hint..

I recently rented this movie and loved it too. If you haven't seen "Arranged" it's another one worth renting and presents a side of people we don't often get to see or take the time to see.
