Movie review "The Visitor"

The movie "The Visitor" is recently released to DVD and what a dandy of a story.
The plot centers around Richard Jenkins who is a teacher in CT and has been teaching the same thing for years and is bored.
He has to go to New York to present a paper and meets two young illegals.
They establish an unusual relationship and the Jenkins sees the young man playing the drum. They form a friendship and Richards' life becomes meaningful.
The immigrant is arrested and possible deportation is an issue. The steps Richard takes to help the couple and the boy's mother are enough to touch your heart.
Well Worth the effort. 31/2 stars.
