Best Film Bet: Free Screening of The Visitor

By |

With all the talk about immigration (immigration rights, the U.S.-Mexico border), rarely is there an opportunity to look at the topic from a purely personal perspective, which is why Thomas McCarthy’s recent film, The Visitor, resonates.

The story of a college professor who finds a Syrian musician and his Senegalese girlfriend living in his New York City apartment illuminates the tough decisions immigrants make to sustain their families and relationships.
