The Visitor, a Special Presentation at the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival®, is the second feature from Thomas McCarthy, whose debut, The Station Agent (2003), is a Film Circuit favourite. Here he returns with a beautifully poised and flawlessly acted paean to humanist hope in our ever-darkening age.

Walter Vale (Richard Jenkins) is a lonely widower, withdrawn from life and barely contributing professionally to the suburban Connecticut university where he is a professor. When he reluctantly goes into New York City for a conference, he finds an undocumented couple living in his long-vacant Manhattan pied-à-terre. He ends up befriending them, especially Tarek (Haaz Sleiman), a Syrian street musician. But Tarek is profiled by the police at a subway station and incarcerated, becoming subject to imminent deportation. When Tarek’s widowed mother, Mouna (Hiam Abbass), appears, Walter’s connection to this family in distress deepens and his narrowed horizons expand.
