The Visitor (2007) Directed by Thomas McCarthy, 103 minutes The Visitor is a drama about a college professor and recent widower, Walter Vale, who discovers a pair of illegal aliens who were the victims of a real-estate scam living in his New York apartment. After the mix-up is resolved, Vale invites the couple--a young, Syrian musician named Tarek and his Senegalese girlfriend--to stay with him. An unlikely friendship develops between the retiring, quiet Walt and the vibrant Tarek, and the former begins to loosen up and respond to Tarek's drumming lessons. All goes well until Tarek is hauled in by immigration authorities and threatened with deportation.
