What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
It's gentle and thoughtful with a magnificent performance by Richard Jenkins as well as the rest of the cast.
Kirk Honeycutt From isolation to the wonder of friendship
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert This is a wonderful film, sad, angry, and without a comforting little happy ending.
James Berardinelli This is a simple story of human drama that provides an incentive to spend a couple of hours in a movie theater during a spring that has not provided many such reasons.
Peter Travers In The Visitor, Jenkins delivers a master class in acting. Oscar, take note.
Tomatometer The Visitor is a heartfelt, humanistic drama that deftly explores identity, immigration, and other major post-9/11 issues.
