The Visitor Trailer

The Visitor is an indie film from Thomas McCarthy that debuted at Sundance this year. It stars Richard Jenkins as Walter Vale who returns to his apartment in New York to find two squatters living in his place. At first thought that sounds a bit scary, but as you'll see with the trailer, he becomes friends with these two people because they aren't citizens and they're trying to make a life in America. This actually looks a lot better than I was expecting just from the plot synopsis I read. By the end of the trailer I was nearly tearing up and I really hope this has a happy ending.

The film currently has a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes with five reviews submitted. Scott Weinberg from Cinematical raves that this is "a damn fine film with a good heart and some really excellent performances." His last line captures perfectly what The Visitor seems like it will be: "The result is a movie with a message, sure, but it works even better as a touching look at a lonely man who finds some warmth, friendship and affection in the most unexpected of places: His own forgotten apartment."

Yeah, this looks fantastic. I hope it reaches all the way to Australia in its limited release.

Looks good, but looks a little political too. I'll probably see it...

Looks good, I will definitely see it. Im guessing that he will get out of jail and move away to start a life of his own with his girlfriend, with the blessing of the old man, and a tearful goodbye. 🙂

Looks great, can't wait to see it. Does anyone know song the trailer's music is from? I bought the soundtrack and it's not on it.
